Re: Are there free and legal speech synthesizer add-ons for NVDA?

Years ago there were a few free addons to add extra voices to NVDA. However, as NVDA evolved and became incompatible with older addons those addons never updated their software. ESpeak may be one of the last, no-cost synthesizers and is still one that I fall back to. Of course, you have Microsoft's voices which have improved and have become more responsive.

Hi, Kim,

I think there are extra voices for older versions of NVDA. Do a search for extra voices for NVDA on either google or any other search engine you use.

Hope this helps.

Moderator's Preface: The membership knows well that any discussion of pirated options, which we all know do exist, is expressly forbidden on this group. If you know of add-ons that are both free and legal, then feel free to share. To my knowledge none exist.

Greetings,

I'm fairly new to the list and to anything that is not the most basic structure in NVDA. My question: Where can I find free speech synthesizer add-ons for NVDA? I searched the add-on site but didn't see this particular category listed.

Thanks so much.
