I don't think voices should be added without review, at least when they are unknown. If you list a voice, it has the implied endorsement of NVDA developers just because it is on a trusted site.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I'm not saying the voice isn't what it claims, but I and others have raised many important questions about it.

Just to be clear, I did add the voice (at the creators request) to the Extra Voices page, which is part of the Wiki which others could edit as well: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/ExtraVoices
In adding it, I was just sharing the resource on the appropriate page, not explicitly endorsing it.
My initial feeling was this was made by a young creator just getting started. Certainly I think we'd all appreciate a review on the voice by anyone who does purchase it (both to allay the fears of those concerned, and just because we all like to know what a new voice is like).

Wouldn't that quickly determine if it is in any way malicious?
