    How do you change the text to speech voice in a (Windows) vbscript?

    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to create a text to speech vbscript. The problem I'm having is that I can only select between 3 voices. I have 8 available in Windows 10.

    Here is my code:

    Code: set voice = CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice") set voice.Voice = voice.GetVoices.Item(1) voice.Rate = 1 voice.Volume = 90 voice.Speak TextMessage[/quote] I get a vbs error message when I choose a number greater than 2 for the voice.GetVoices.Item(1) parameter.

    Error: 0x80045039
    Code: 80045039
    Source: (null)

    Any suggestions?

    TIA,

    grecinos

    How do you change the text to speech voice in a (Windows) vbscript?

    I've been doing some research on this topic for about an hour. All of the tutorials that I've found indicates to use this format in order to change the voice:
    Code: set voice.Voice = voice.GetVoices.Item(i)[/quote] I found the code that returns the number of available text to speech voices via a vbscript:
    Code: voice.GetVoices.Count[/quote] When I run that line of code, I get "3" as the return value. I clearly have 8 installed, though. My intuition is that there must be a way to enable all available voices somewhere in the Windows 10 OS. Just a guess...

    Any thoughts?
