Ivona Voice not work on Windows 8 x64

    Question

  • Hello
    I downloaded Ivona Voice (IVONA Jacek (PL)) from this site: ivona.com.
    Next I installed voice successful, but this voice I not see in Ivona Reader (or is not avaiable in system). (I see only Microsoft Zira Desktop (EN))
    Does anyone know how can I fix it?

  • It is most likely be compatibility issue , try follow steps on:

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/troubleshoot-compatibility-issues-in-windows-8-developer-preview.aspx

    If that didn't solved the problem, please answer these questions:

    1)Does this worked in Windows 7?

    2)Did you received any error during installation?if yes, please post error code.

  • Hi liptonace,

    Try to run the compatibility troubleshooter to install the drivers.

    Manufacturers have not created drivers for Windows Developers Preview, so I recommend to update to the most current Windows 7 driver.

    If that doesn't work, then try to install in compatibility mode.

    For the driver you downloaded use the compatibility troubleshooter to install them to see if that resolves the problem. You can do this by:

    Enter the Start screen

    Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    Select Search

    Type Compatibility

    Click Settings in the right column

    Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

  • Ivona is voice for windows, not have exe files after installation (this is voice similar to "Microsoft Anna - English")

    In windows 7 works perfectly

     

    IN:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Speech Recognition -> Text to Speech

    look print screen on win7:

  • Check with the manufacturer of Ivano's voice and see if they instructions on using Ivano's voice
    with Windows Developer Preview.

    They do have an FAQ area.
