Hi,

Thanks

Hey Chris.

I think, especially with Vocalizer, this is more than anything down to
personal preference. There are differences in intonation, even
pronunciation. My favourite is Daniel. If I want a female type voice, I will
use kate (though is she available in any of the NVDA add-ons?). But the only
way to know is to try for yourself. I find the Daniel voice to be very
pleasant to listen to.

Kate is available in the addon from CodeFactory.
Eloquence isn't very good in that addon, but the CodeFactory Vocalizer works great in my experience.

Cool. Maybe that's the one I ought to shell out for, then.

Blimey, that is going to be very much a personal opinion, in my view Daniel is often over expressive for me. His real name is John Briggs by the way.

I guess it depends on what you are using it for really.
