W10 1511, 1607 and 1703 Text to speech setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    following situation: 
    I try to setup text to speech on our custom W10 image based on 1607 build, but it requires elevated rights. When pressing Get Started button under Settings -> Time & language -> Speech, UAC prompts for elevated credentials. 
    On our custom build based on 1511 it does not ask for elevated approval, on 1607 it does [both domain joined, same policies applied].
    We also checked on plain vanilla from MSDN, on 1511 we can set it up on standard user, on 1607 and 1703 we cannot set it up on standard user [checked on workgroup, not domain-joined, no policies, PCs are certified for W10, Lenovo T460s it that matters].

    Anybody knows reason for the change from standard to elevated user to set that up?

  • Hi, 

    I have tested on my 1607 and 1703 machine, both require the admin privilege in Speech configuration. 

    Also, i tested when I configure down the UAC level, it will not be required in 1703:
