Re: Voices With NVDA Question Please.

Gene,

Thank you as well, I’m going to try my best to find out just what is this voice.  The voice I am talking about is very natural as well as clear.  I don’t believe I ever heard a screen reader to sound this natural and clear in the little over 30 years I’ve been using a screen reader.  This is a mystery!  LOL!  The voice I am talking about what ever it is called, also tells me the day, and the time, as well as it says hello at the welcome screen.

I don’t have Windows 10 and I can’t discuss how to use Narrator in that version of Windows.  But there must be a way to find out what voice Narrator is using.  Whether this can be done in Narrator settings itself or in some other way or more than one way, I don’t know.  In the old days, Narrator used the Windows’ default voice.  I don’t know what it uses now.

Gene,

That’s a good question, I wish I knew.  The voice that comes on my machine is not even close to David or Mark though.  Do you know how I can raise the speech rate on Narrator?  I would like to see just how much more Narrator will sound if I raise the speech rate.  I’m very sure the voice I am talking about and the Narrator voice are very similar.

The next question appears to be how  do you find out which voice Narrator is using.

Hi,

No it is not even close to Mark or David.  Although, it does sound very very similar to Narrator.   If that makes any sense, I’m not sure.

Could it be Microsoft Mark?

Brian,

Ok, I finally got my Laptop turned on, and I tried the voices especially David, and the voice I am talking about and the voice of David, are as different as day and night.  I turned JAWS, NVDA off, and I turned on Narrator, and the voice I am talking about and Narrator sound very very similar.  Could this be possible?

I just installed NVDA 2021.1 and I'll bet my bottom dollar that the voice now used by the installer is Microsoft David, which is a Microsoft OneCore Voice.

I use David as my voice with NVDA, but at a slightly faster rate, and if it's not Microsoft David it's so close that using MS David would probably suit anyone who likes that installer voice.
