Re: Voices With NVDA Question Please.

Gene,

When I first downloded and installed NVDA 2021.1, I tried three other voices just to hear what they sounded like.  Now, I can’t find the voice that was there when I first installed NVDA.  Although, even now as soon as I turn on my Windows 10 Laptop and NVDA, I do hear the voice that I like, but only for a second, and then the other voice Zira comes in which I am currently using, and the voice I like I don’t hear anymore.  Kind of strange!  LOL!  I’m thinking the voice I like might be the NVDA original voice, just a thought.

I don’t know what voice that is.  Are you saying that when you run NVDA, you hear a certain voice and if you change it, you can’t get back to it?

Hi Gene,

The problem I have with raising the voice, is I can’t find the voice in order to change the rate though.  I can only find the three voices David, Zira, Mark, and I can change the rate for either of them, just not the voice I hear when I turn on NVDA.

One point asked about in the original message is how to speed up the voice.  I don’t have Windows 10 and so I can’t describe how you speed it up in Windows 10.  To speed it up in NVDA, open the voice dialog, NVDA key control v, tab to rate, and right arrow until the slider is at the speed you want or at maximum. 

 

You will likely want the speech to be faster and this discussion explains how to do it in Windows itself.  I don’t use Windows 10 and I can’t discuss how it is done.  If you have questions, you may ask here, of course.

Oh, okay. The earlier NVDA voice that was used 2010 or earlier sounded awful.  I got used to it. Then I guess maybe 2017 or something. It got better.

The male voice  you hear  when nvda  first started, might be David.  It and the Zira voice are both part of the micro soft 1core voiceds that come with win10.

Hi Everyone,

 

While I'm trying to get used to NVDA, as I am coming from JAWS after 30 years. I like it so far, but I have more to learn about it.

 

My question is what is the name of the male voice that first comes on when installing NVDA? I like that voice, if I could only speed up the voice, I would like that even better!  I am currently using Zira not sure of the spelling or the name though.  I do like that voice also.  Is the Zira voice from Windows?

 

Thank you all in advance for any help.

 

Janet

 

Peace Be With You.
