Speech synthesis output copyright/license RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am planning to develop an application which converts my own text to speech using the  SpeechSynthesizer  with installed voices in the OS.

    I would like to know whether any licenses required for using the output audio files for training, as uploading to websites etc. and the voices are copyright protected or not.  Already gone through the Use of Microsoft Copyrighted Content and nothing found specific to the use speech synthesis output and voices.
