Re: Reading Japanese with NVDA 2022.2

Espeak NG, yes. It's the only one now so I just call it Espeak out of habit. And yes, I know I'm using it, as I am very familiar with the voices and what they're capable of. :)

I do have automatic language switching turned on, but not automatic dialect switching. Is this important?

I don't have any non-English 1Core voices installed and truth be told, don't know how I might get more. There was this lovely British guy called George who got installed one update and disappeared in another, and I miss him. :(

Also, and this is not meant as snarky, are you certain you are using Espeak as your synth?  I'd also suggest, once you're certain that automatic language switching is turned on in NVDA, that you give the Microsoft OneCore Japanese a try, if for no other reason than testing.  It does support text to speech.
