Remember that SAPI5 do not allow automatic language switch, at
least natively in NVDA...

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 of version.
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.

Since Eloquence 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 discerning

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 without them.

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?
