of NVDA and not in the portable version of NVDA. It was put
into the NVDA 2016.1 release.

Is when you are having problems with speechhub is it when
you first boot up the computer? I have 6 machines here all
with speechhub on them, the 5 of them which are duel core
machines load with speechhub every time with the correct
voices, but they are not the intensive ones. I have not
tried it with the mary voices for a while.
Now and again on the quad core machine when it starts up, it
will default back to the E speak voice. I think this is a
With the installer version of NVDA I use the alt + ctrl +
the letter N to restart NVDA then it comes up with the voice

Hi listers ken here was fiddling around on
synthesizers dialog on NVDA and and didn’t find the
ducking option in the dialog. also now another
issue is coming up. I also changed synthsizers to a
speech hub cross platform voice and I noticed that
the NVDA isn’t saving configuration it’s going back
to the Espeak default. have switched back to sapi
5 and now I notice that it’s still reverting back to
default. screen reader keeps shutting down too when
I do some things. why isn’t it holding
configuration or ducking even though my computer
shows save configuration is checked and am using
current version it shows that on programs and
features installed on 2/22/2016 should I uninstall
and reinstall a fresh copy from scratch?
