Windows 7: Windows7 Text-to-Speech Issue

08 Feb 2018   #1

Windows 7 HP 64bit
Windows7 Text-to-Speech Issue


there is an 3rd party application that is using Microsoft Text-to-Speech and is known to work fine in Windows 10. Although Windows 7 has TTS integrated too, for some reason the TTS functionality does not work there.

Would anyone have any advice what to install / change so that TTS works the same way as in Windows 10 and applications can utilize it? I of course do not want/need the better voices that Win10 offer, I just want the TTS to work with the default Anna (or any other extra voice I install). Now the app's TTS component is silent in Win7.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
