    Selected Text To Speech voice has no effect


    Hi!

    I use restream chat daily to hear the messages that viewers of my streaming type in Twitch and Youtube. It has the TTS feature activated and the voice David (English/USA) selected. Also in the Windows 10 TTS setup window I have it selected.

    Everything worked fine until one day the voice was switched to Helena (Spanish). It just happened and I did nothing. When I reviewed the TTS setup screens in Restream and Windows 10 everything looked fine and David is still selected. But none of the apps can use that voice and all of them use Helena. I tried also with Microsoft Word with no result. The funny thing is that even Restream has no option to select Helena (?)

    Why did that happen? Can I fix it? Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    :)

    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

    Changing Text to Speech Voice

    Hello,

    I've been trying to make the Microsoft George text to speech voice on my Windows 10 desktop computer available for use in the third-party program, Voice Attack. I downloaded the English (UK) language pack, and thought that would be enough, but not only is
    the voice not visible to voice attack, it's not visible to Microsoft Office, and I can't get it to read anything except the sample text in setting when you click the Preview button.

    I tried setting Microsoft George as my default text to speech voice in Settings and restarted my computer. The default text to speech voice in settings still said it's Microsoft George as it should, but everything reads in the Microsoft David voice, and
    Microsoft George is still not visible to Voice Attack. The strange part is that Microsoft Hazel does show up and does work in other applications. I checked Control Panel>Ease of Access>Use a computer without a display>Set up text to speech, and Only David,
    Zira, and Hazel show up, same as in Voice Attack. I tried downloading the English (UK) language pack from the Control Panel instead of settings but to no effect. The only thing I haven't tried is setting my default language to English (UK), because I don't
    want my written languages to change. Other than that, I'm out of things to try.

    I can't seem to find anyone who's having quite the same problem as me online. I did get something that suggested that the voice I want might be somehow only available for mobile operating systems, but I've found nothing to suggest that this one is a mobile
    voice on the website or in Settings. If for some reason it is incompatible with a desktop OS, I would appreciate any suggestion (short of piracy which I don't engage in) anyone has of how I can get a reasonably high quality male TTS with a British accent to
    work on my Windows 10 desktop without having to pay upwards of $30 for the professional ones.

    Thank you.
