If you want both, it is about 150 or so. The nvda add on that includes the sapi and eloquence is $69. So the add on is a better deal as you get both for half the cost.

The last I checked, I thought the ;price was about the same.
Others may have compared. Mine is an impression, not a good memory.
That, and it’s about half the cost of the SAPI version. I’d go with the add on any day.
I got Nimer’s permission to send this message regarding Eloquence.
There is a point worth considering when deciding between the add-on and the MSAPI version that hasn’t been discussed in the recent thread. The add-on won’t work for brief times, ;perhaps once a year. When there is a major upgrade of NVDA, it may become incompatible until it is updated. I believe it has taken about four or five days in the past.
If you use the MSAPI5 version, it will work with any version of NVDA so when there is a major update, this problem won’t occur.
There may be other things to consider when deciding which one to get, such as responsiveness, but if things are pretty much equal between them, this is a point to consider when deciding which one to purchase.
