Re: Reading Japanese with NVDA 2022.2

I just rebooted, and still can't see any of the new voices I installed! And I went to the Ease of Access Settings and checked the installed language packs again and they weren't there! I was back to English United States and English Australia only!

Yeah, I forgot. It just happened to me too. The only solutions for that after you've closed the settings dialogue and then restarted NVDA are 1, reboot your computer, or 2, if you don't feel like rebooting right now, just install another one core language. Oddly you won't see the language you just installed in NVDA unless you reboot, or install yet another language. Then you'll see the next to last language you installed. You'll see all the languages only after you've rebooted the machine. It wouldn't let me see Japanese, and I didn't feel like rebooting so I just installed Arabic Egyp, and then I could see the Japanese voices. But of course, not the Arabic ones.

I didn't expect perfection, but at least it's not what Espeak NG seemed to be doing when I scrolled through the language list the other day, and spell out e v e r y s i n g l e w o r d that is in a Latin alphabet. That I could not stand, or I'd have just switched to the Espeak NG Japanese voice and never mentioned anything to you guys here.


Unfortunately, though, I can't seem to access any of the voices I installed (I got the English Great Britain and English Ireland voice packages too). I don't know what I've done wrong—I followed the instructions I was given exactly, but All I see are David, Zera, James, Catherine and Mark.

So I just added the one core Japanese voices just for fun, there are 2 female and one male, and they all speak Japanesified English otherwise known as Engrish. It says odd doh instead of add, bot toe instead of bat, and rawng ghehjeh, or rawng gheh reggie
depending on which voice you use, instead of language. Those are a few examples. It would take some getting used to, but if it saves you from constantly switching languages, and you want a free option, I think you could get used to it.

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.
