We are trying to add additional voices to Windows 7.
Voices from Acapela Group are SAPI 5 compatible and will work with Acapela's programs.
These voices do not, however, show up in the Control Panel, Speech Recognition, Text to Speech, Voice Selection option.
One problem is that the Acapela program makes appropriate entries in the Voices section of HKEY_CURRENT_USER, but not in
HKEY_LoCAL_MACHINE. The latter are required for a Voice to show up in the dropdown list.
We made the appprpriate entries in LOCAL_MACHINE. The Voices not show in the drop down list, but there is an error message that: "This voice cannot be played".
Does anyone know how to setup a new Voice and make it the default rather than using Anna ?
Thank you very much.
We are having zero progress trying to solve this problem.
I haven't tried adding a TTS voice and making it the default in XP, but understand from those who have done it that the Voice installers create an entry that shows up in the TTS voice selection box.
In Vista, a fix that reportedly works is to select show 32 bit icons in Control Panel. The added voices show up as icons and clicking on one provides an option to set the default voice.
The Vista option doesn't exist in Windows 7 except possibly by executing C:\windows\syswow64\control.exe filename.cpl
Try to run this: %windir%\SysWOW64\speech\SpeechUX\sapi.cpl
The credir for the solution is for http://wxmesg.blogspot.com/2010/06/at-natural-voices-on-64-bit-windows-7.html

-Install Acapela Infovox 2 Engine

Windows 7 can not work...
