Re: Can Narrator's voice be replaced in a 64-bit Windows 7 system?

Not so, I also have some 64 bit SAPI voices from Cepstral,

The main limitation I am aware of is a lack of 64 bit variants of the
RealSpeak voices that use the SAPI interface. I do find this somewhat
annoying as the RS voices (especially Emily) are the natural sounding
voices I am most happy with.

Looks like Ivona's are the only voices that will do the trick.

Hi,
As I type this message Narrator is speaking with IVONA voice Amy which I
setup as my machine default voice in 'text to speech' configuration on
Windows 7 PRO 64-bit edition.
Hth,

not a problem, if its just for narrator I think your stuck with that voice
or at least other 64bit voices. I've managed to change the text to speech
property's in windows 7 64bit to set the default computer voice to the
old
scansoft realspeak solo voices and it works for everything like the games
I
run, voices on my ipod etc and uses the old Daniel voice but ironically
the
only one it doesn't change is the narrator voice and always just reverts
back to the Anna voice, which although its not to bad if you have to use it
for a while it does get a little annoying after a while

regards

Strictly for Narrator, because I can't stand the default Anna. As Soronel
wrote, and as I read online, it seems the only voices you can use for
Narrator on a 64-bit Win7 system are the 64-bit variety.

Hi,

Do you mind me asking the reason for wanting to change the narrator voice?
is it actually for narrator or so that when using third party programs like
games etc it uses a different sappy voice,as I know the real speak voices
that used to be shipped with older versions of jaws (version 8 and earlier
I think) used to be able to be installed on my xp machine and these could
be
used and I believe there is a way of getting them installed on a 64bit
machine if you still have the real speak CD

After doing considerable googling, I am left with the impression that
anyone
with a 64-bit Win7 system is stuck for Narrator with MS's assigned voice,
Anna, which I don't like.



Can anyone prove me wrong? Please!
