@Nidza, I do think the voice is specific to region, since I haven't seen mark.
The fact that the mobile voices show up as a separate synth in Nvda suggests to me they probably are a different engine to sapi.
Then again, I don't have any 64 bit sapi programs to test them on besides narrator itself.
To be honest though it's not a major deal since I have decided for the time being to use orphius human sounding voice Alan with nvda, as while George sounds pretty good, the reaction speed is a little slow.
I'll probably have to find something else eventually, especially if I am switching from Supernova later and so don't have access to the sam engine, but I'll be okay for now.
Btw, to get back to windows 10I do have a couple more questions.
firstly, is there a way to copy folders from the start menu to the desktop? It'sirritating to install something and then only have the basic "play" icons on the desktop so that if I want to read the manual or go to the website or whatever I have to go trauling the program files folder for the actual files to create desktop shortcuts.
I've tried the applications key, but other than "pin to task bar" there doesn't seem to be an option.
I also would like to stick a wordpad icon on my desktop, as it's something I use regularly, ditto with mail, although it's possible I'll be switching to another program since while the default mail is okay I'd prefer a less irritating contacts and replies management system, ditto with a separate folder for copies of sent items and draughts, (I'll probably try out some programs and see which I like best and cooperates best with nvda).
Either way, for now if there is a way to find shortcuts of stuff in the start menu that would help a lot.
I'm still not decided about which version of office to get, whether the stand alone or the 3 65 version.
On the one hand, 365 is cheaper in the short term, on the other, it's probably more expensive long term since it is likely I will have this pc for at least another four or five years (possibly even more).
I don't particularly need the cloud storage as I prefer manual backups anyway, and besides, at most I'll get a laptop at some point to have a travelling machine so all the vaunted "portability" won't affect me too much, and from what I understood about the licensing if you want 365 on multiple machines you need the 5 computers version which is more expensive anyway.
On the other hand, I do wonder about updates to office especially with narrator and whether if I buy the standalone home and student version if I'll miss out on future upgrades.
this wouldn't usually be a concern with office, but I do like what is done with narrator so far, and with office being microsoft's flagship project, it is likely access upgrades will be included there first.
Does anyone have any opinions on this?
