Re: a couple questions sparked by recent topics


As far as I know, One Core voices are the default in Windows 10.  But you can switch to Microsoft MSAPI 5 voices as I understand it, which are available and I think at least a small number are provided as a part of Windows 10 as installed.

Ha, ha, Luke,

That's pretty good,  I'm wrong two out of two.
I thought nvda used  one core voices by default in win10.
That's alright,  I like one core zara  and I guess I could choose a spai5
voice for  a particular profile.

Sorry Monte, but they are SAPI5 voices that come with Win 10.
You can confirm this by pressing NVDA+Control+s, changing your synth to
SAPI5, and pressing OK.
Then pressing NVDA+control+v, and going through the voices that are listed.

I believe this was originally an install of Windows 10, 1809, and I
certainly never chose to download any SAPI voices.

I'm sorry again, but no, it isn't. If you spell the word as it appears in
NVDA's voice list when set to SAPI5, you will find that it is Zira, Z i r a,
as Louise mentioned.
