1. Go to:
2. Follow the instructions, and get to:
3. Download the engine. I saved it.
4. Download the addon with all of the calibri voices or
whatever they're called. Again, I saved it.
5. Go to where you saved them. Click on the addon for the
engine. Tell it to install. Say no when it asks you to restart.
6. Then click on the addon with all of the voices. Again, say
yes you want to install it. This time, restart.
7. Hit NVDA-ctrl-s, pick a capela as your synth.
For me, this talks just fine. I don't know that I'd buy them,
because I've never been a huge fan of their voices and there's
no rate boost that I can see, which means even at a hundred
percent, it's slower than the rate I usually read at. But I am
absolutely running NVDA 2021.2, I just checked, Windows 10 21H1
with latest updates, and it's working just fine. I didn't even
get anything about picking a trial license or whatever, I just
did the above steps, and it's working, for how long, I have no
idea, not that it matters because I'm going to uninstall it all
after I'm done writing this message anyway. I think I did
briefly do a trial a few years ago, so maybe it's just picking
up on that, although I don't know if I did it on this machine or
not. Anyway, working just fine here.

The acapela voices 1.7 addon is not
working with nvda 2021.2. I have 14 days left in the trial.
I installed the engine and the Calibri voices. When I choose
acapela I get no speech and have to restart NVDA. And when
you try to install voices from the addon itself it wants you
to download 1.6 addon version which is not compatible with
2021.2. I contacted acapela but got no response. If these
voices won’t work I guess I can’t buy them and it says I
have 14 days left in my trial so they should be working.
