Well To be honest, there are little pops at the end of words like
late, city, etc, sometimes "t" and other words with sounding
things like t or y or well who knows a lot of things, sound a lot
sharper and maybe a bit to much.
It may just be things to get used to but even espeak pops at

Yes, this is exactly what I’m running into.
Interestingly enough those pops seem to happen in pretty much
the same places as they happen for you In phrases like NVDA
menu, which to me at least suggests this may be somehow
related to the speech system refactor. Glad to know I’m not
alone, hopefully Tiflotecnia can figure this out.
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.

[nvda-addons] Vocalizer 2.1.0 Ad-on pops in compact
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
Is anyone else seeing this?
