No, the inflectioni was a lot more in jaws way back in about 2000 to 2003. And the volume is way too low even with nvda cranked at 100 percent in volume control and in nvda itwwself. I'm now trying the add on and the result is the same, the volume is way way way too low for my liking. I need that thign blasting into my ears.

I don’t see anything related to inflection in the SAPI program.
However, if you open the settings for Eloquence, not in NVDA, but in the
program, you can tab around and see check boxes for volume and a few other
settings. You can check the checkboxs for the item you want and you can
then tab to a field where you change the setting. The check boxes say
something like voice force change.
But based on your description, I wonder if there is a problem with
how the SAPI 5 program is running on your machine. When I tried the demo,
there was inflection similar to that of JAWS. The volume, as I recall, was
fine. I don’t recall if there was a volume setting in NVDA itself when
using the program.
If I understand what you are reporting, you hear no inflection. this
is definitely not expected behavior. I’ve tried the SAPI program on more
than one computer and had inflection similar to JAWS.

Hello. I’m trying the eloquence add on and have also tried
the sapi add on. I find that:
- The rate boost is gone.
- The inflection slider is missing
- The volume of the voice is way too low even at 100
I guess I’m too used to the IBM tts voice I’ve been using now
since about 2017. I’m also used to the old eloquence from about 2003. Lol. Is
there any way to get these sliders back with nvda? –
