There is no reason you can't adjust inflection just because it is
You may find an inflection setting in NVDA in the settings when you
are using Eloquence. If you don't, there is a setting in Eloquence
settings that are outside of the program that may do what you want.
There is a check box you can check that says something like adjust
pitch settings. If it is checked, you can change a combo box you
tab to once after the check box.

If I use Sapi5, doesn't that mean I can't adjust inflection? I
don't like that idea very much...

would suggest getting the SAPI5 Eloquence version, not the
add-on. You can use the SAPI5 version with any screen-reader
that supports SAPI5 and you don't have to worry about which
version of NVDA you use it with. NVDA supports SAPI5 regardless
You can try a demo to see if it does what you want. If no one
gives information soon about where to get a demo, I'll check.

Actually, while I'm thinking about it, how much is
the Eloquence addon? And is it a one-time payment? I know
Jaws is subscription-based now (at least, I think that's
what the deal is, and last I heard you had to pay for new
updates, which I always thought was a d*ck move), but is the
Eloquence addon by itself a one-time payment? If so, I may
consider investing in it for circumstances such as this.

is paid and I don't like it anyways, that's not an option
for me. I dunno how, if at all, those packs would help, and
I don't want to change synths. Anything without inflection
settings (including most paid synths) sounds woeful to my

The question is did you switch
ESpeak's language to Japanese. With some synths, they just
won't work with Japanese or some other foreign alphabets
at all unless you add language packs in Windows. I just
opened a Japanese Wikipedia page with the following
results. Japanese Eloquence read it in Japanese. ESpeak
Japanese read Japanese letter this, Chinese letter that.
You may want to check out this page about installing
language packs in Windows, or find a synth that will work

The New Releases page said that
Japanese was added to Espeak as well as the packaged
Braille Tables. I want to learn Japanese (I started
learning in school, then left school, and that was a
good fifteen years ago now), and just found out the
browser version of Duolingo is accessible with NVDA.
However, I've checked with a couple things (I'm a part
of a number of anime fandoms), and NVDA doesn't switch
to Japanese when reading passages, instead continuing to
say "Japanese-letter" several times, or if I'm scrolling
over it, "Japanese-letter" plus several numbers that I
suppose are it's unicode designation? But anyways, it is
not reflecting the addition of the language bank in
Espeak NG. And I know the ProTalker addon has not been
compatible for years, though even if it were, there were
some weird pronunciation issues with even that.
Is there something I am missing here?
