Buying Compact vocalizer voices


Daniel McGee
 

Hello everyone

Is it at all possible to purchase the Compact vocalizer voices to be used in conjunction with NVDA? In particular, UK Daniel compact.

If not, then could this be possible with a future update to the expressive voices for the future? As I personally prefer compact variant to whatever the other one is called.

Am currently in the process of my 7 day trial with the code factory voices. So far, am loving the fact that I can use Eloquence with NVDA. If Daniel compact could also be used that'll be the icing on the cake for me. Plus I'll be using the the same voice on my iPhone.


Thanks in advance for any feedback on this matter.

Regards

Daniel

I personally don't know why people like the compact voices. To me,
they sound like complete crap and are all full of static. I've got
Daniel on my computer and could use him with NVDA if I wanted. I have
the scansoft version of him using SAPI5. However, he isn't my
favorite voice. He sounds very arrogant and snobbish at least to me.
But to each their own. Good luck.

It is because I have a hearing impairment. This is why I prefer compact versions. I'm only seeing the normal versions of the vocalizer expressive voices and not the compact ones.

It depends on what Vocalizer voices you are purchasing from. If you buy the one from Tiflotecnia, they have both the compact voices and premium voices. But if you buy the vocalizer from Code Factory, the only voices that available to you are premium voices only.

Actually, the Eloquence/Vocalizer NVDA voices from Code Factory are supplied with both the compact as well as the higher quality Vocalizer voices.

Hmm. Can't see them listed here. Maybe I'm missing something. Only the premium and premium high are listed.

Well, my copy of the Eloquence/Vocalizer voices allows for two versions, embedded pro, which is smaller in size, and embedded high. The embedded pro voices sound a bit like the compact voices. Are they actually different from those voices?

Yes. They are different. Vocalizer voices from Tiflotecnia offers three variants. There are compact, plus, and premium high voices. While Code Factory's version offers only embedded pro and embedded high.
