  • American English

You can also use Nuance® Vocalizer™ Expressive voices with JAWS for more natural-sounding, highly-responsive speech. Vocalizer voices are available in a wide variety of languages, even more than Eloquence. Visit the Vocalizer Expressive Voices page on the Freedom Scientific Web site to see all available languages, listen to samples, and download voices for use with JAWS.
