Hi, sorry I should have said you need the voices installed.

I figured out the problem.  The instructions and layout of the web page don't make this at all clear.  I found and installed the latest main adde-on and then a voice and it worked.

I don't know what determines when the add-on works.  It doesn't work on my Windows 64 bit machine and I've seen a few other reports of it not working, but I don't know if there is a pattern.

the Nvda addon does not do this it is very responsive and for me just
works.   I use it on windows and android.

There is a SAPI 5 version of the voice.  I played with it this afternoon. I don't have Windows 10 so I can't compare it to the Windows 10 voices, whose name I don't recall now.

The voice I tried was alright, better than many free voices I've tried, but not nearly as good as Dectalk and Eloquence.  Still, it may be that some people might want to use it.

However, and I'd have to play a lot more with this to determine if it was a fluke or an ongoing problem, it appeared to slow down my computer to have the SAPI 5 voice installed.  Programs took longer to open.  As I said, to determine if that was just how things were for some other reason for the time I have the voice on my machine, which was only a short time, or whether it was caused by the SAPI 5 version would require more testing. When I removed the version, things returned to normal.

I think that's a great idea. If more people spoke up about their favorite voices, we could get them added to NVDA.

Hay, maybe if we can hear from a large number of people who like these voices, maybe we can get them added to NVDA. As nonpremium voices.  We know they are always improving.

I'd also like to see the cortana voice added to NVDA without charge. I really like how she sounds. My favorite voice in the one-core voices is thefemale voice called Zera. She sounds very clear.

    Hmph, if you are happy to pay a load of cash for each version
    update  from freedomscientiffic or visparo etc thats your issue,
    have issues with licences, need scripts for just about everything
    like win98 needs drivers, are happy with the possible bad
    technical support issues going about and are happy that if it
    screws up you need to repair, reinstall or reformat if it totally
    goes nuts, not to mention that visparo like suing everyone under
    the sun well more than I'd like, go ahead.

    When I used their stuff it was ok, but yeah, I never really had
    that many problems with it.

    Never got into the payed script racket, either.

    I had to repair it once or twice, but that was before it became a
    beast.

    Compaired to nvda well who knows.

    The information bandied round the list pluss a few other user
    experiences not my own pluss the fact that due to jaws and issues
    causing me to have to reformat to make them completely quit, but
    mostly information on here pluss what I hear from time to time,
    especially with how they got all the competing companies bar
    dolphin and that probably because they only just moved out of
    using internet explorer puts the impression on me that like
    microsoft used to be and may still be that this is a monopoly I
    would really like to see the back of.

    I certainly am happy I no longer use their software, and unless I
    got a job which is what jaws is bandied about by various
    governments and stuff, I wouldn't touch it unless I had the cash.

    To be hhonest this goes for dolphin stuff which is why I got in
    the beta program but that was for a completely selfish reason that
    being smuglers, its about all I care about now days.

    To be honest, I don't much care for a company who is clearly
    running a business for the charity, government and enterprise
    market with prices to high for average users to buy, and needing
    expensive upgrades and modules for remote access with specialised
    blindy bits and bobs.

    Nvda and things like narator have opened me to the mainstream, and
    with mainstream devices like the amazon echo devices and smart
    phones about, when the new normal comes along, I think some of
    these things will fall away sharply.

    Dolphin seems to recognise this, so does avast.

    So does nvaccess which is why I use them for most of my stuff.

    Now there are a few things nvda does not do, but everything has
    its limits.

    But if you plan to use a wordprocesser, a desktop app, a web
    brouser or email client or any office app or app using standard
    controls or terminals then you don't need jaws for that.

    Now some of the mega custom apps and the like specialised
    programs, will need specialised software, and yeah, jaws is what
    you need and will always need.

    Thats not nvda's job.

    The job of nvda is to handle all the normal business and home
    applications that use standard controls, and the like as well as
    web interfaces.

    To be honest that is what may happen, specialised software will
    need specialised software, and will be charged accordingly.

    The only reason I'd get jaws is leasy thats about the only reason
    I'd buy jaws now.

    And to be honest if leasy would just sell its games module then
    I'd just buy that.

        Even though, all throughout the newsletters and you tube

        This in short isn’t fair.

        So, here’s hoping the newer upgrade to NVDA is more accessible

        Even though, in my opinion, JAWS is a much better program.
