Re: Voices With NVDA Question Please.

Well, all this discussion prompted me to go around looking for
additional TTS voices. I just installed ones from Canada--man--why do
*they* get all the good ones? I mean wow--I'm not like a voice freak
or anything like that but those voices from Canada are really really
good. I know what I'll be using whenever I make spoken tutorials from
henceforth & probly forevermore. I'm really impressed--I mean I sat up
& took all kinds of notice. My question still remains--why does Canada
get the good ones while we in the US get stuck w/the likes of Xera &
David? That's just craziness!

Hi
You can edit Narrator settings as follows:
Pres Windows+I to open settings dialog
Press tab once to enter list of Categories, then arrow down to “Ease of
Access” and press enter
In the next dialog, press tab once to enter the list of sub-categories and
arrow down to “Narrator” and press enter
Tab through the controls in this dialog box, you will find lots of
Narrator settings including Voice, pitch and rate.  Change as required,
then press alt+F4 to exit the dialog.

Cheers
Chris

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.

expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body. What you
