Re: Windows OneCore Voices Speed


Is there any particular reason not to use a compatible version of NVDA at this time?  If there is no important reason to switch, you can wait to see if a compatible version comes out or you can purchase something compatible when you have a reason to use a newer version of NVDA.  I don't know what else may now be compatible but the Code factory add-on is and I would think that the SAPI 5 Eloquence you can purchase would be compatible because, being SAPI 5, it relies on SAPI 5 and doesn't care about how NVDA is coded, so long as it properly implements that standard, which has nothing to do with the transition to Python 3.  (spelling)

Which voices do you use? The version of Eloquence I am using is nout out for NVDA 2019.3. I find Espeak very difficult to use and don't have options besides the 1 Core voices.

You might like to try the rate boost. If it’s turned on NVDA will speak very fast. If using laptop, hold down control, shift, NVDA and use left or right arrow to navigate to rate boost option. Press up arrow to turn it on, down arrow to turn it off.

I am I am not sure what the commands for desktop are.

Is there a way to increase the speed of the Windows 1 Core Voices while using them with NVDA? Even set at 100%, the rate is still extremely slow.
