Is this the glitch you are talking about? It doesn't exist in 2019.2.1, and
the standard and standard-high voices don't exhibit the same issue in 2019.3.
See the attached samples for an audio comparison, though the specs on the
testing environment isn't all that great.

Subject: [nvda-addons] Vocalizer 2.1.0
Ad-on pops in compact voices
This message is mainly for Rui but I'd also like to
know if anyone else is seeing this.
I just updated to NVDA 2019.3 and
took the time to update my ad-ons. Since Vocalizer Expressive (the Tiflotecnia
one) isn't ported yet I grabbed the updated version of the Vocalizer 2 driver
on the Portuguese site on tiflotecnia.net, plus a handful of old favorite
voices (All the English compact ones to use Serena, plus Polish Agata and
English Lee in premium).
I'm finding that the 2 premium voices work
great. However, the compact voices have audio glitches. It's as if the audio
cuts out occasionally for a few milisecond and comes back which causes a
slight stutter and sometimes clicks and pops in the audio. These stutters also
seem to be consistent and always happen at the same point in a sentence. To
reproduce, simply switch to a voice like Karen or Serena, and navigate around
the NVDA menu, adjust voice parameters like volume and listen to how the
numbers are spoken.
I'm fairly sure I don't remember the voices
behaving this badly on older NVDA versions as I used to use them pretty
regularly, my computer is also pretty powerful (Core I7-6700 and NVDA is
running from an SSD so performance shouldn't be a problem)
else seeing this?
