Does anyone know what interface is used by Eloquence? It is not SAPI 4 nor 5, and it works better than a SAPI voice. The problem with the SAPI voices is that at a certain moment only a single SAPI5 voice can be active, and in order to change the voice we need to go into Control Panel/Speech, and changing the active voice there doesn't always work. For example, I've tried to use ESpeak sinthesizer, and I couldn't make it active but only by deleting all others voices from the Registry. And this was a problem also because Narrator doesn't work without those MS made voices. Does anyone know some books or tutorials for working with these things under Windows? But of course, not MSDN, because it refers only to ways of creating sinthesizers which are not used by any good company that creates sinthesizers. Information about creating sinthesizers that work under Symbian are also welcome.

I am trying now to understand how to make a voice for the language from my country I search for documentation, but it seems that this is a taboo subject because I didn't find nothing how to code speach. ----- Original Message ----- From: alex To: programmingblind@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Saturday, October 06, 2007 1:09 AM Subject: Is there a program that will help you create Sapi5 voices? Well I was wondering, Is there a program that will help you create Sapi5 voices? Like something that you speak a number of letters into a microphone then it gets an understanding of your voice and creates a sapi5 engine out of it?
