Doesn't work Text to Speech, issue Exception calling service start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody, I have installed the RDS 4 some days ago, but when I want to try the tutorial or samples about text to speech I can't do it.

    For example I run the "Run DSS Node", in the web page I went to "Control Panel" and selected "create" into "Text to Speech" but not happen nothing!

    I tried to install Text To speech SDK 5.1, changed the language of my pc and reinstall the RDS 4, but nothing! I would like if can give me some help.

  • Please try the following

    start the "DSS Command Prompt" (from your start menu (win7) or start page (win8))

    type
    dsshost32 /p:50000 /t:50001 /m:samples\config\wpftexttospeechui.manifest.xml

    After a few moments you should see a dialog called "TTS User Interface".
    Type into the text field and click "Say it!".

  • Have not heard back from you in a while, so I marked the above as answered.

    If you have further questions, even on the same topic, please start a new question thread as answered topics do not get as much attention.

    Thanks!
