I think Max is the original voice that's in NVDA.

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

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.
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.
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.
Mail for Windows 10
voice you hear when nvda first started, might
be David. It and the Zira voice are both part

[nvda] Voices With NVDA Question Please.
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.
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?
all in advance for any help.
