Re: NVDA 19.3

I think Heather is asking why she can't use Eloquence from Jaws with NVDA (given the thread is about NVDA 2019.3?)
If that is the question, the reason is because of the license Jaws is distributed with. Eloquence is only licensed for use with Jaws.
In that respect, it's much like saying, I have a copy of MIcrosoft Office, why can't I use the spell check feature from Word in Libre Office writer? Aside from any technical limitations, I'm pretty sure Microsoft's license for Office wouldn't allow it.
If you definitely want Eloquence, you can get a license for it for NVDA from Code Factory: https://codefactoryglobal.com/app-store/voices-for-nvda/
We have added Rate Boost for Windows OneCore voices (included in Windows 10) so it is worth trying those if you have Windows 10. The OneCore voices are about the most natural I've heard. There are also paid synthesizers you can buy, as well as Eloquence: https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/wiki/ExtraVoices
