I've had no luck contacting the developer, so I removed it when NVDA 2021.1 came out because it was incompatible.

Dennis,

We're of precisely the same mind.  I had private discussions with Eric Damery of Vispero about this site, and the now defunct group they had on Groups.io, a bit over a year ago.  I was one who reported their group to Groups.io administration and they were shut down on Groups.io very shortly afterward.

When you have software developers producing commercial software for a niche market (and screen readers define niche market) you are literally starving the people that have fed you by pirating or hacking/cracking that software.  It's also theft, pure and simple.

That site is a den of thieves, and has remained so, and they're proud of their thievery and present themselves as "doing a service for the worldwide blind community."  Well, if what they're doing is a service, it's one I'd far rather do without.

CodeFactory Eloquence for NVDA 2021.1

I just upgraded to the latest version of NVDA.  My Eloquence from code factory has stopped working.  What is the link for obtaining the new ad-on to get Eloquence back?

Actually, we really should not.  It's become abundantly apparent over time that, "One person's trash is another's treasure," when it comes to opinions regarding synthesizers and voices.

The mechanics of using any one of them are worth discussing.  Answering questions about one's personal and specific perceptions, when asked, is worth doing.  But offering of broad assessments is really not particularly useful at all.

Just a quick point Brian.

I totally agree.

This web site was promoting a crack version of jaws 2021.

I don’t mind admitting I asked sight and sound in the uk to inform freedom scientific of this and, as I understand they can’t promote the ibmtts or jaws any more.

A lot of work goes in to development these products as it does with nvda and to “whistle blow” these sites in my view is to be welcome.

People coming across such sites should inform developers of nvda, jaws etc and hope to stop this practice.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.

Huh. Definitely some kind of Windows issue, yeah. I removed all of the extra voices, except for Ireland which doesn't have a removal button, which is a problem I suspect. Weirdly, all the voices still show up in the voice list, even though I've removed them. So there's definitely something weird going on. Unless anybody has any ideas, I'll probably just leave it alone. I suspect to really remove everything at this point and start fresh we're talking registry stuff, and I am not qualified to deal with that at all.

Have you rebooted the PC since updating?  It's worth doing that as we do often see odd things like this after updating and before restarting.  Next, if you press NVDA+Q then down arrow to "Restart with add-ons disabled" does that make a difference?

Hi all.


So I've got all of the extra English OneCore voices installed, so
Richard, Linda, James, that kind of thing. For some reason, if I set
NVDA to use the OneCore voices and change voices, all of them are David,
except for Zira and Mark. I'm pretty sure this worked at one point, but
it's obviously broken now. I've tried restarting with addons disabled,
and I still have the same issue.


I know the voices are installed properly because if I go into
settings/time & language/speech, the voices show up there and preview as
themselves. Additionally, if I run Narrator, I can change to each voice
in the list and it's actually the correct voice. Anybody have any ideas?
It's not vitally important that I get this working or anything, I mostly
use Code Factory's SAPI 5 Eloquence, but it's pretty strange, and I like
to fix those kinds of things if I can.

loss of nvda hot keys

I think it is a known issue that sometimes on what seems to be a ramdom basis the NVDA hot keys stop working. Reloading NVDA for me fixes the problem.
Running the latest version of Win10 with all updates. I am also running NVDA 2021.1. As I said this issue seems to be random but I think the problem is worse with the 2021.1 version of NVDA.
