Yes. I think this is like the third time I've mentioned
restarting at this point. Sadly, the problem is impervious to the
magical magicalness of the magic of rebooting.

As already suggested , did you restart

voices are the same voice for me.
Huh. Definitely some kind of Windows issue, yeah. I removed
all of the extra voices, except for Ireland which doesn't have
a removal button, which is a problem I suspect. Weirdly, all
the voices still show up in the voice list, even though I've
removed them. So there's definitely something weird going on.
Unless anybody has any ideas, I'll probably just leave it
alone. I suspect to really remove everything at this point and
start fresh we're talking registry stuff, and I am not
qualified to deal with that at all.

It sounds like the OneCore voices /
languages might have been corrupted - I've seen that
happen (with various results) elsewhere - try removing and
re-adding a language / language pack and see if that

Have you rebooted the PC
since updating? It's worth doing that as we do
often see odd things like this after updating
and before restarting. Next, if you press
NVDA+Q then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons
disabled" does that make a difference?

So I've got all of the extra English OneCore
voices installed, so
Richard, Linda, James, that kind of thing. For
some reason, if I set
NVDA to use the OneCore voices and change
voices, all of them are David,
except for Zira and Mark. I'm pretty sure this
worked at one point, but
it's obviously broken now. I've tried restarting
with addons disabled,
and I still have the same issue.
I know the voices are installed properly because
if I go into
settings/time & language/speech, the voices
show up there and preview as
themselves. Additionally, if I run Narrator, I
can change to each voice
in the list and it's actually the correct voice.
Anybody have any ideas?
It's not vitally important that I get this
working or anything, I mostly
use Code Factory's SAPI 5 Eloquence, but it's
pretty strange, and I like
to fix those kinds of things if I can.
