Re: speech rate changes to defaults

George, if you are using the Windows OneCore voices then I’m a bit baffled at what you are experiencing. What version of Windows are you using?

Are you running any addons? If so does the problem occur if you restart NVDA with addons disabled?

It happened again this morning. My configuration was saved. It seems that only the rate reverts to 9 on the rate setting.


Any thoughts?

Try saving the configuration after you have set it to what you want it to be set at

On 2021.1, I will be working and the speech rate changes to the default rate of 9. I have been going to the desktop and then go to the speech preferences and set the rate to 24 or 25, which I like. It then works for a long time until it does this again.


Just a bug or any other thoughts? Using Microsoft core voices, because my Eloquence is not working yet.
