Subject: Re: MP3 clip generation with Eloquence

Re: MP3 clip generation with Eloquence

Hi,

I think I have found voice box uses your default SAPI voice.

At 08:20 AM 1/18/2006 +0200, you wrote:

>You're right. It can only be used to list all the SAPI 4 voices you have, not to select them for use. I don't know if there's a way for selecting them for use with VoiceBox, although I hope that there would be. Maybe someone who knows better can inform we about this.
