Hi Steve,

I will have to correct you there.

The Ivona voices are about 25 pounds per voice.  The NVDA Vocaliser
voices are 65 pounds which gives you access to all the voices, not just
one voice.  So which is cheaper?

All the best

Hi All,

There’s been some discussion on the list about using the Vocalizer
voices on NVDA.  Yup, they’re not bad and quite realistic but for
information, Vocalizer is not the only additional synth you can use on
NVDA, Ivona have a range of exceptionally high quality voices including
British Amy and Brian and a wide range of American voices including a
very pleasant Sally voice.  They can be bought directly from the ivona
website or from RNIB for considerably less than the vocaliser voices.
You can also get a trial license for them.  I think the British pack
from RNIB is around £40.

Try www.ivona.com <http://www.ivona.com> and have a listen to the samples.

Best wishes
