System.Speech.Synthesis GetInstalledVoices() : How to install additional voices, like a french voice. RRS feed

  • It doesn't look like those voices work with System.Speech.  They do work in Office applications if you set the proofing language accordingly.

    I believe this engine is controlled by the Microsoft.Speech SDK.

  • Leave these voice aside, I would like to put forward a question in another way: How can I add additional voice to window 8.1 so that my add can use the additional language in my app. Put the question in another way: isn't it good idea to bundle the voice pack with its respective language pack, At least offer that as an option?
