Hi Dark, Yeah, so true. In fact, as I have said before Ivona's Bryan and Amy U.K. voices are actually superior to the RealSpeak Daniel and Emily U.K. voices in terms of voice quality. The only complaint I have with Ivona's voices---which is quite common with any high quality voice--is they tend to lag if you are typing really fast. They just simply can't keep up with the input/output. As a result they are good for playing SAPI games like Jim Kitchens games, reading e-books, but suck if it comes to day to day computer opperation.
So what I do with NVDA is use ESpeak as my default voice for composing e-mails, writing documents, programming, etc and flip over to one of the Ivona voices to read a document, e-mail, or play a game. That works out well enough. ESpeak isn't my favorite voice, but it keeps up with my high speed of typing where the Ivona voices can't. Cheers!
