Microsoft French or German TTS doesn't work from my side


  • Hi Expert,

    I need to add some new TTS to Windows. After intall the MSSpeech_TTS_fr-FR_Hortense.msi, the French selection should appear in the voice selection of text to speech window but not appear. In the same time, the French cannot be read in Microsoft Word. German TTS has the same behavior.Is the installer correct or where is the correct installer?

    I downloaded the installers from

    Thanks a lot

  • The runtime you told has been installed already. The function still doesn't work.

    I work around it by some coding. If you find it works from your side, please tell me the setting up process.
