    Unable to install speech when installing a new language


    I like to install English (US) as a second language in win10, to get the English text-to-speech capabilities to have epub-files read out loud and such.

    I did this two weeks ago and it worked fine, but I have reformatted since, and now when I try the language pack it fails to install the speech and handwriting options.

    If I navigate to Settings->Region and Language and click options on the English (US) language pack in settings I can press "Speech" and it starts to download but fails after a couple of seconds with no error message.

    Any ideas? Does anyone have the same problem when installing a second language?

    :)

  2. Cannot select Portuguese (Brasil) as a speech language

    I am unable to do this step:

    • Go back to Settings > Time & language > Speech and make sure the Speech language setting is aligned with the previous settings. If the language you want isn't available, follow the
      steps on the next tab to add it.
    Even though I have followed all the steps exactly, and have installed all the required files (see my first post) but the drop down for speech language only has English (US) as an option. I have tired uninstalling and reinstalling the files, but the option
    in the drop down still does not appear. What is causing the speech option not to work even though everything required for it is there and installed correctly?

    • Do you have Windows 10 Pro edition installed on the PC?
    If you have Windows 10 Pro then you will be able to install the speech package.

    Unable to install speech when installing a new language

    how to set up speech in lumia 520 and install language pack?

    If you’ve newly purchased a Lumia Windows Phone device, you’d have noticed that when you Long Tap the Windows Logo key, you see a message saying “Speech is off until your new language pack is installed“. This message appears up because the required
    language pack for the speech service to recognize and read out the content (such as messages) is not yet installed.

    The language pack would usually install by itself if you were connected to the internet while setting up your newly purchased Lumia phone. If for any reason it wasn’t installed, you need to follow the following steps and upon installation of the language
    pack, the speech service will start running properly.

    How to install Language Pack for Speech in Windows Phone
    • Tap on the Windows capacitive button to reach start. Now swipe right to access your list of apps.
    • Once here, tap on settings and scroll down to find Speech(Alternatively you can also long tap the Windows key and when it shows the error, tap on settings.
    • Now tap on Speech Language to display the list of languages that are installed or else can be installed.
