The one I'm using is NVDA 2015. I tried the latest version, but it caused my
machine to go bonkers with errors every time I started NVDA.

I know that newer versions of NVDA have introduced changes which affect how
the screen reader interacts with addons. Therefore, if the synthesizer you're
using is from a third party addon it's possible that the new version of NVDA
that you installed isn't properly supporting that addon. I would advise
writing to the addon developer to see if he/she is planning to update their
addon to support NVDA 2019.3.

Hi Annabelle,
It's been a while, but it seems like you need to select SAPI 5 and
then select Eloquence.
It's been a while, so perhaps I'm wrong, but give that a try.
I also tried the dectalk once and it didn't show up for me either.
If my Elloquence suggestion does not work, you might need to try a
different Eloquence.
I could send you one.

Hi, it's Annabelle.
I know this might be a bit off topic, but I've installed some
synthesizers for NVDA, but it seems the "Eloquence" and "Dectalk"
synthesizers don't show up in the list, despite the fact that NVDA
says they're installed. What do I do next? Have I forgotten something?
