Re: speechhub add-on installation error

Isaac Porat


I am glad it works now for you.

The NVDA add-on installation page:

States clearly that SpeechHub (there is a link to the installer on the same page as well) needs to be installed first.

When you install the SpeechHub NVDA add-on it checks that SpeechHub is there it runs a test on it and if all is well it completes the add-on installation.

Installed in the above sequence I did not receive a single report on an add-on failure.

Regarding it's synthesizers, I am not sure I understand your question about finding these:
Press [NVDA + Ctrl + s] and the list is there, there are five SpeechHub synthesizers by default group together clearly distinguished by the word 'SpeechHub'.

I have another question though. I didn’t find SpeechHub synthesizer as
fast as eSpeak or eloquence synthesizer. Anything I should do for

No, I couldn't find it in the installed add-on list.

Double check in Add-Ons Manager (NVDA+N,T,A,Enter) to see whether it's

I received a message to the same effect about Speech History when I tried
install it two days ago (I think) and mentioned that here on the group.
Even though I got that error it appears to have been spurious, as the
History add-on is shown as installed and enabled in Add-Ons Manager.

Please report back on your findings.
