Windows OneCore Voices Speed

Is there a way to increase the speed of the Windows 1 Core Voices while using them with NVDA? Even set at 100%, the rate is still extremely slow.

In the voice settings dialogue, if MS one-core voice is selected as synthesizer, if you tab past speech rate slider, there's a checkbox to boost the speech rate, which can make it rather fast?


This is from one of the relatively new versions of NVDA, but anyway.

I'm using NVDA 2019.2.1. I do not see the button you are describing.

Ok, my bad - think it might have only been included in the 2019.3 beta version - thus intended for NVDA 2019.3, but, honestly, also not something I pay attention to, since barely ever use any of the natural sounding voices.

Hi.

You might like to try the rate boost. If it’s turned on NVDA will speak very fast. If using laptop, hold down control, shift, NVDA and use left or right arrow to navigate to rate boost option. Press up arrow to turn it on, down arrow to turn it off.

I am I am not sure what the commands for desktop are.

Which voices do you use? The version of Eloquence I am using is nout out for NVDA 2019.3. I find Espeak very difficult to use and don't have options besides the 1 Core voices.

Is there any particular reason not to use a compatible version of NVDA at this time?  If there is no important reason to switch, you can wait to see if a compatible version comes out or you can purchase something compatible when you have a reason to use a newer version of NVDA.  I don't know what else may now be compatible but the Code factory add-on is and I would think that the SAPI 5 Eloquence you can purchase would be compatible because, being SAPI 5, it relies on SAPI 5 and doesn't care about how NVDA is coded, so long as it properly implements that standard, which has nothing to do with the transition to Python 3.  (spelling)

I stopped using Eloquence a while back. I didn't think I'd ever get used to a different voice, but I now actually prefer Microsoft Zira in the OneCore voices, and yes, you can speed them up. You have to go to the rate boost option and check it. to get to the rate boost option, I do the following:

NVDA+control+v, then tab over until you hear rate boost. Check that box and tab to OK. You might be able to play around with the rates after checking that rate boost box before going to OK, but I'd hit OK, then I'd go back into those settings and set your rate and then tab to OK again. If you have NVDA 2019.2 this should work. I think the rate boost option came as a feature to 2019.2. It was either 1 or 2, I don't remember, but I'm certainly glad it's available. Hope this helps.

Hello,


Yes, since I reinstalled Windows from scratch, and decided to choose English UK as system language, I'm using OneCore voices, and I must say I love them.

They work very well with NVDA, are less intrusive than other voices (softer to the ear, somehow), clear and very flexible.


Now I need to install some other voices for different languages, but I think this is gong to be my tts of choice.

Hi all! 
I use Elequance on both JAWS and NVDA. I’m sorry that the newest version doesn’t work like the older versions! So far, I’ve done all right with Elequance but if that changes, I’ll be sure to explore other voices on NVDA and pick one.

What do you mean by the newer version doesn't work like the older versions?  What are you using, an NVDA add-on or something else?  You can use Eloquence in the new version of NVDA.  The Code Factory Add-on has been made compatible.  You should be able to use the SAPI 5 version with NVDA.  I haven't tried it but there is no reason it shouldn't work.

What do you mean by the newer version doesn't work like the older versions?  What are you using, an NVDA add-on or something else?  You can use Eloquence in the new version of NVDA.  The Code Factory Add-on has been made compatible.  You should be able to use the SAPI 5 version with NVDA.  I haven't tried it but there is no reason it shouldn't work.

Hi all! 

I use Elequance on both JAWS and NVDA. I’m sorry that the newest version doesn’t work like the older versions! So far, I’ve done all right with Elequance but if that changes, I’ll be sure to explore other voices on NVDA and pick one. 

 

As the result of attending school, I have discovered that Writing is one of my gifts. On the other hand, I have eighth grade spelling. Because of my eighth grade spelling, I’m currently working on improving my spelling where it is possible.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email!

 Blessed Be!

One Minute Message:

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

NFB Pledge:

I pledge to participate actively in the effort of the National Federation of the Blind to achieve equality, opportunity, and security for the blind; to support the policies and programs of the Federation; and to abide by its constitution.
