I have just begun to foray into the world of text-to-speech with Windows 7 (32bit). Has any solution been found which will allow me to change the default voice in Windows 7 32bit?
Is there a common file folder location where all of the installed voices are stored for access by the system? If so, what is that specific directory?
Can I simply copy voice files (SAPI5) into this directory, or must they be "installed" by Windows somehow? How can I use voices that I have purchased from a vendor from being deleted when I uninstall that vendor's software, so that I can continue using voices that I purchased?
I appreciate your kind consideration of my questions, and appreciate any help that you can offer.
