Re: CodeFactory updated their download of the Eloquence/Vocalizer driver

Oh darn! I already updated it! I'm screwed! I thought I could find my
key easily. I thought I kept the email. If I did, I don't know where

If you update NVDA, it will disable the add-on, which you are warned about.

When you install the new update to the add-on, it also removes any Vocalizer
voices installed. It also deletes the activation from the computer, so you
will need to enter your activation code again.

to a text file or just keep it there. If you keep it on the clipboard, you
can then update both NVDA and the add-on. Once you have restarted NVDA with
the new version of the add-on installed, you can go into the Code Factory
menu selection, and re-activate with the key you previously copied to the

You will need to re-download any Vocalizer voices after the activation.

You should not loose any of your activations, since your computer ID string
will not change.

Hi listers:
Code Factory has updated their own link for the Eloquence/Vocalizer
driver. They just updated the file, but, left the filename the same.
However, it is definitely changed, since I’m using it right now. They
haven’t yet done the one branded for ATGuys, but, it doesn’t
matter—their download also works with the licensing system. Here’s the
