Re: I have another NVDA question:

Gene
 

Is it an old version of Openbook, seven or earlier?  At any rate, to answer your initial question, the synthesizer won't be copied to another machine if you make a portable copy.  I don't think any synthesizer will except for E-Speak, the one that comes with NVDA.

Microsoft One core voices

Don H
 

OK under the win 10 settings you have a time and language. When you open that you have a option for languages and one for speech. In both you can add voices. Which one do you use to add voices that can be used by NVDA?

That list is the reconstituted Dectalk speech engine for SAPI5, not the One Core Engine.

Re: NVDA remote

Shane Davidson
 

Joseph,

I’ve never experienced an issue with remote and win10 app essentials. If I can get far enough back in today’s backlog of mail and can find reliable steps, I’ll go play around with stuff and see if it’s reproduceable in some way.

Robert,

To fix remote’s busted wherein the connection/options dialogs won’t come up, delete %appdata%\nvda\remote.ini and restart NVDA. Why this happens is beyond me and I haven’t taken the time to grab the source and debug that particular busted as it’s just rare enough to not have reliable steps for reproduction.

Hi,

Hmmm, that’s interesting, more because my own add-on has failed to live up to its expectations…

I’d like to get data from others experiencing the same issue where Windows 10 App Essentials interferes with Remote for some reason, and only removing the former restores the latter’s functionality. If this can be reproduced reliably, I’ll look into creating another mitigation.

Some voices cannot be used due to their lack of support for sapi 5. Hazel can be used but mark cannot for example. You would probably need to take this up with Microsoft in regard to this.
