Re: Reading Bangla number with nvda default espeak

Sharad Koirala

Hello Farhan
greetings from Nepal,

there is the same issue with nepali as well when one sets the voice to
english in the speech settings. this can be fixed by changing the
voice to bangla (in your case) in the speech settings. this can be
reached by going to nvda menu>preferences>settings>speech and pressing
tab repeatedly to reach voices and pressing"b" to reach bengali and
finally tabbing to "ok" button and pressing "enter".

I am using the nepali voice in this case.

however there is a hiccup that though espeak will read both english
and the specific language numbers correctly, you will get the feedback
while typing only in bangla.

hope this works,

Hi Farhan

Which version of NVDA are you using?
Is it a new issue or has it always been there?
If it is a new issue in NVDA 2022.1 (beta), it should be reported to NVDA,
since there has been work regarding Bangla in this version as you know; and
it should be fixed before the definitive version.
If it has always been there (especially before 2022.1), you should report it
to eSpeak.
