Yes, the default voice in JAWS is Eloquence. I have been using Eloquence for twenty years. I have tried other human sounding voices and some are pretty good at normal speaking rate. But I always go back to Eloquence. Eloquence for NVDA does sound the same as Eloquence for JAWS.

Hi list,


Over the years, and especially since I started using a screenreader in 2011,  I hear many people talking about the features of Eloquence which they like.  I think onne of the main ones is clarity of speech at higher verbosity rates.

I mostly use nvda with the Zara one core voice.  Once in a while I’ll load the jaws demo  when a web page  is not working well.

Is the default jaws voice Eloquence?

Does nvda with eloquence sound the same as jaws with eloquence?

Personally, I don’t mind nvda with one core Zara.

But,  I usually have the verbosity rate  just a little faster than normal human speech.  I lose too much info if I try listening  at a fast rate.


Thanks for your feedback.
