Text to speech voices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    i have created a program that does text-to-speech.
    it uses the microsoft voices (microsoft sam)

    does anyone know if microsoft provides/sells more voices or where i can get some more?

    i downloaded 2 packages yesterday (microsoft test to speech SDK SAPI 5) and a (SAPI 4) which i installed using the .msi
    but i had no access to the voices which i assumed it would add.

    at the moment in my program i type in the voice i want so i can go to Control Panel --> speech and look at the drop down list of voices and just type one of those in to the settings box and it would use that voice (at the moment only microsoft sam is there)

    can anyone help me to get more voices for my program or show me how to select a voice and direct me in the right direction?

    Thanks in advance
