  • Ivarveen,

     

    I found a sample VB.NET project of Text to Speech in Code Project. I hope the sample project can provide you some idea with your application:

     

    Text to Speech with the Microsoft Speech Library and SDK version 5.1

    http://www.codeproject.com/vb/net/TTSinVBpackage.asp

     

    This article describes an application used to exercise some of the Text To Speech features available to .NET developers through the Microsoft Speech 5.1 SDK. This article does not address the newer speech server related libraries, nor does it address web based deployments of speech related technologies.

     

    The application performs several functions although all work in basically the same manner. The application is intended to provide an introduction to working with the TTS library, by illustrating how to go about gaining access to and manipulating voices, and playing text out as synthesized voice. The application provides examples of generating speech as you type, passing canned phrases to TTS, and passing entire text files to TTS.
