I guess it would largely depend on what you started with, and learned
to like first. I myself began using Dos screen readers in the early
90's and at the time the Dectalk PC and Dectalk Express hardware
synths were the best around. They were the most human sounding you
could get on the market, and I fell in love with the Dectalk line of
products at that point. When Jaws 3.2 or 3.3 began shipping with
Eloquence I totally dispised the synth from day one. Oh, I can use it,
but I hate the voice with a passion.
However, I've noticed those users who started with Jaws for Windows
and Eloquence from the start say Eloquence is great and hate Dectalk.
Their opinion is as much a mystery to me as I'm sure my opinion is to
them. However, I think it boils down to the fact I started with
Dectalk and liked it, and Eloquence never lived upto my expectations.
Those who started with Eloquence have their own gripes and complaints
about Dectalk. All I can say is different strokes for different folks.
