Re: Reading Bangla number with nvda default espeak

farhan israk

Thank you. It has been fixed after changing voice to bengali. It has always been there. How can I send feedback to espeak developers? I am using nvda 2021.3.5. If I navigate word by word, nvda only announces the first letter of a bengali word. It does not announce the word. However, it does not happen with English words. If I navigate word by word in an English sentence, nvda announces word without any issue. It only happens while reading Bengali words.

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,
