Re: nvda with eloquence


I'm not sure what you are referring to. There is a legal add-on for NVDA that provides Eloquence and Vocalizer, both in the same add-on. There is also a SAPI5 version of Eloquence that you can use with any program that supports the SAPI5 interface.

Both have demos and you can see what you think of them.

I don’t have the links right now, but that is not what I’m talking about. I mentioned that I am not impressed with vocalizer… It takes too long to get around and as I said it is not as responsive as the previous eloquence add-on that was the illegal one. I do not mind paying, but I am not going to pay for something that doesn’t help my productivity.

Hi, Melissa.

There is a legal copy of Eloquence for NVDA, which you can try out or purchase from Codefactory by going to the following link.

I have found that eloquence, not just the voice, is more responsive and easier to use. I wasn’t impressed with vocalizer… It sounded the same… But did not work the same. I read that there is a legal version of the ad on, but I am unable to put the other parts together or whatever it is called. Right now, just using 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.
