Re: Reading Japanese with NVDA 2022.2


I don't know if OneCore Japanese voices do it, but I've come across many of these natural voices over the years that use non-latin alphabets that will read English in the Latin alphabet, and their native language in their native alphabet. The English pronunciation is sometimes amazing, and sometimes terrible like Engrish, unfortunately the Japanese ones I've heard tend toward the terrible side. it all depends on what you really want and what you can teach your brain to listen to, and what you can tolerate to save yourself from constant language switching and save your pocketbook.

Okay, I will definitely look into that. But I don't think I can set up things in that synth so I can get two languages simultaneously either. I need to know what I'm doing as I learn.

one core voices do have japanese. go into settings, windows+i. accessibility in windows11, or ease of access in windows10. down to narrator, tab to add voices, tab to add more voices under language packs, go select japanese and it will be downloaded and installed. restart NVDA and then you get one core japanese voices.
