Choose the Text-to-speech Playback Voice


Text-to-speech (TTS) is the ability of the operating system to play back printed text as spoken words. An internal driver, called a TTS engine, recognizes the text and, using a synthesized voice chosen from several pre–generated voices, speaks the written text. A TTS engine is installed with the Windows XP operating system. Additional engines are also available through third party manufacturers. This procedure tells you how to select a playback voice associated with the TTS engine you use through Speech Properties in Control Panel.
