I like George's voice, but my personal laptop does not hav it.

I only find it in my PC at work.

Please take me through the steps to download and install additional
Win core voices.

If you do not mind, direct me to a page with well elaborated tutorial.

Thanking you in advance.

Hi Marisane

You need to download and install the relevant language pack for Windows 10 which I think is “English United Kingdom” if you’re wanting the George voice.

 

1.Open “Settings” using Windows+i, and then select Settings  > Time & Language  > Language.

 

 

2. Under Preferred languages, select “Add a language”.

 

3. Under Choose a language to install, select or type the name of the language that you want to download and install, and then select Next.

 

4. Under Install language features, select the features that you want to use in the language that you selected to download, (this should include associated voices) and then select Install.

 

 

Once installed the additional voices should appear in the list of available voices in NVDA.

 

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris

Thank you, Chris.

I have got it, but I cannot understand why I do not find English
United Kingdom even after typing in the edit box.

If a voice doesn't show in the list, how does one get it?

Thanking you in advance for your help.

Why not just do it through narrator? 1. Open Narrator Settings by pressing the Windows logo key + Ctrl + N.

2. Tab to Personalize Narrator's voice, tab once more to and select Add more voices. ...

3. Under Manage voices, select Add voices.

4. Select the language you would like to install voices for and select Add.

More items...

You’ve got UK, U.S., Canada and Ireland you can choose from.

Two things:

1.  Regional variants of a given language are enclosed in parentheses for search purposes, e.g., English (United Kingdom)
2.  If you already have the language pack for a given region installed, that option will be stippled out and inaccessible in the list even if it exists, as you can't install what's already installed.

George has been a part of the English (United Kingdom) language pack for quite a while.  I can find him if I go to the NVDA Settings, Voices, as I use OneCore as my synth of choice, but with Microsoft David.

My only suggestion would be that if you already have the UK English voices installed, and are not finding George, is to uninstall (remove, in the terminology used in the Windows Settings dialog) the existing UK language pack and then add it back again.

Hi           

As far as I am aware, each language pack has a set of TTS voices and for a specific voice you need to find out which language pack it belongs to. And download that.  I have 9 different Onecore voices available and have loaded the English United Kingdom, English United States and English Canada language                                         packs to get them.

 

Cheers

Actually windows control n does open narrator settings, or some accessibility setting. I’ve done this before quite by accident.  I just did this just now to confirm this.
