    Speech-(From Audio Card)-To-Text App


    Hi, I'm looking for a free app that actively listens to the audio card on the computer and whenever it recognizes English words, it types it as text.

    Anyone know of something like this please?

    I appreciate it.

    :)

    text to speech

    Do you heard of software which can read text in any application and convert text to mp3, wav, ogg or vox files? I known one - Alive Text to Speech , but it is not a free software, i can use it for 20 days.

    Do you recommend a free software?


    Thank you!

    Speech to Text

    Hello,
    Thank you for guiding me in the right direction.

    I attempted all of the 6 steps recommended above. Only issue was that for step 4, I could not access/did not have access to the "hardware and devices troubleshooter" for whatever reason. Even after a reset of the Surface, I am still unable to set-up the
    speech recognition with the onboard microphone. The sound/audio works just fine for everything else though.

    I have purchased an external microphone for use on other apps and this microphone will suffice for what I intended to accomplish. It has been set up for speech recognition and is working properly. I do have one related question that I have not researched
    in depth: How do I use the speech recognition to perform speech-to-text, into a program such as Word or Scrivener? The best response I found was that I can use it to complete a sentence or two, but not continual speech-to-text similar to Dragon Dictate or
    text messaging on some phones, etc. Can it be set up to perform this continual typing while speaking?

    Thanks again,

    Doug

    No Sound in Narrator or any other Text-to-speech Apps

    Hi Andy,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forum.

    • What is the make and model of the machine?
    • Are you aware of any changes that happened on the computer prior to this issue?

    This seems like an issue with the audio drivers. You may install the latest audio drivers and check if it works. Refer
    Check Device Manager section under Fix sound problems in Windows 10
    to know more about the same.

    If the issue persists after updating drivers, continue reading.

    Since you do not hear speech after testing the system, consider the following:

    • The speaker volume is not turned up or is muted. Some speakers have external controls for volume and muting. Make sure the volume is turned up sufficiently or that muting is off.
    • The speakers may not be selected as the current output device. On the Text-to-Speech tab, click Audio Output to make sure that the speakers are selected.
    • The speakers might not be connected properly. Consult the speaker hardware documentation for additional information. Make certain that the sound card for the computer is also properly seated and installed, and that the correct drivers are available.
    • The Text-to-Speech engine may be corrupted. To test for corruption, switch to another engine. See the
      Changing the TTS voice or engine section to know more about the same. If another engine is working properly, reinstall the specific engine from the original source. If no engine is working properly, reinstall the speech engine from the original
      source.

    Change the TTS Voice or Engine:

    To change the Text-to-Speech voice or engine, follow these steps:

    • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click
      Speech Recognition.
    • On the Text-to-Speech tab, the name displayed in the
      Voice selection drop-down list is the active voice.
    • Click the active voice inside the drop-down list, or use the arrow to display a list of available voices.
    • Click a new voice to select it.

      The newly selected voice speaks the text in Preview Voice box.
    • Click OK or Apply to accept the new voice.

    Notes:

    • A Text-to-Speech voice is closely associated with a particular speech engine. It may not be clear from the displayed name which language a voice is using. After selecting a speech engine or voice, test the voice and language by clicking
      Preview Voice.
    • The language or voices supported by a speech engine may not be obvious from the engine's displayed name. Refer to the specific user's guide for detailed information about the engine. This includes not only the language supported, but also the lexicon
      purpose. The lexicon purpose indicates whether it is a general grammar or jargon specific to a profession such as legal or medical.
    • Microsoft does not provide additional speech engines (voices), but a number of third-party products are available that support the new Microsoft Speech API. You may use your favorite Search engine and look for information on these
      products.

    You may also want to check if the issue persists on a new user profile. Refer
    Create a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    for the same.

    Regards,
