Text to Speech voices
« on: October 07, 2009, 09:46:37 am »
How do I add and use other text-to-speech voices? I'm running Windows XP, and my only voice so far is that of Microsoft Sam. Any information would be most appreciated.

A bunch of random ones come with it, but you can download the Microsoft voices seperately. If you can't find 'em I'll upload them and post a link.

I think you can download other voices for the text to speech/ narration system through a website somewhere, I do recall ones that installed Microsoft SAM, Microsoft Anna and some fan-made voices but I'm not exactly sure where. You can also download replacements for your assistant on Microsoft Word other than that boring old paperclip.

While I'm one of the staff who runs the site, Abwayax is the founder and manages the technical side of the site (specifically the server, but I can do forum/wiki stuff if you like, I suggest if you do to make a thread about it to gather a consensus). Still feel free to contact me about higher site issues though; I will forward them to Abwayax if needed. :)

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

That little bit if information at the bottom was not required as I do not own Word.

EDIT: Come on people! I would AT LEAST Like to have Microsoft Mary! Why? I wanna make an UTAU out of her. And also Sam's voice is boring for reading stuff out.
