How would one acquire this synthesizer? I'm able to use Eloquence because it comes unlocked in my Kurzweil program.

But, for basic tasks, if you have Windows 10, change the synthesizer
to SAPI 5 and you will have either David or Hazel I think, which are
good voices.

The keystrokes are much like Jaws.

The way it handles the mouse is very different.

I use it as my backup screen reader when Jaws (or in its day,
Window-Eyes) lock up.

It takes very few resources.

I’d never heard of NVDA screen reader until just recently …… I have
only heard of and used Jaws. I am curious and have quite a few
questions but I’ll narrow it down to this one for now …… Is there much
difference in the capabilities of what each screen reader can do
regarding work and home use? Thanks in advance for your input.
