Re: Voices With NVDA Question Please.

Janet, you don't tell us a few things that might be important here.
1) Do you perchance have Jaws coming up on the sign-in screen?
2) What country are you from?
3) If you go to control panel > speech recognition > text-to-speech,
what is your default voice there?
4) What version of windows 10 are you running?

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.

which are contained in and actuated by the body. What you do and say is the
