Deborah, regarding other speech options you can purchase licenses
for Nuance Vocalizer voices as well as Acapela, both of which
offer Spanish options.

giving you a combination of both Eloquence and Vocalizer, which is
the option that I purchased.
The various voices for Acapela and Vocalizer need to be

I have a question for all you bilingual folks. I'm learning
Spanish and entering now my fourth quarter and have moved from
beginner to intermediate.
If I use JAWS and when a website, assignment or test
doesn't have the correct markup for automatic language
switching, I can issue the keystroke Control-Windows-L to have
JAWS change the synthesizer language.
But I am not finding any feature in NVDA that does the same
thing. I can certainly go to preferences and Speech and make
changes there, but I'm often reading things in Spanish with
instructions or explanations in English. And I prefer the
Braille support NVDA gives me with Spanish. Is there an easier
way to switch synthesizer languages on the fly?
I previously used the switch synth add-on before NVDA moved to
Python 3. But I removed all my add-ons to make the upgrade
easier, and then just installed Braille extender. Is that
switch Synth add-on still the easiest or the only way to do
And are my only choices for free Spanish voices the
Microsoft and the Espeak Spanish voices?
Thanks for the help.
