Now that I've completed setting up my new system with 64 bit Windows 10 Home, I have discovered an annoying problem hopefully somebody has encountered and found a solution for.
If I use any of the TTS voices that came with Windows they are fine, no problems that I can detect, but if I use Eloquence, either the one that comes with JAWS, or Code Factory's version for Windows, the volume is all over the place, it plays at one volume level one minute, then seemingly at random it starts playing at a higher or lower volume level for a while, then, again, it starts playing at yet another volume level. It's really annoying, to the point that I have switched to Microsoft's David until I can find a solution.
This was never a problem with my old system which ran 32 bit Windows 7 Home Premium using just the Generic audio drivers that came with Windows. After hearing some people complained about RealTech's High definition audio drivers as well as Dell's audio drivers, because of this, I was hoping that Windows 10 would also just load and use generic audio drivers, but found that the Dell audio drivers had been installed instead.
I have to agree with whomever it was that said they didn't like the Dell audio drivers, which appear to be based on the RealTech drivers, the audio quality I got from the generic drivers that Windows 7 used was far superior to what I'm getting from the Dell audio drivers.
Question: If I uninstall the Dell audio drivers, will Windows revert to using generic audio drivers, or will it just reinstall the Dell drivers, and if it insists on the Dell drivers, does anyone know of a solution to this poor audio quality I'm experiencing?
