Subject: Re: SAPI 5 voices

Hello Daniel

Yes, the line is the correct one.
In order to use SAPI4 instead of SAPI5 in the voiceutils.vbs script, you must make some changes to the routines.
Unfortunately I don't have time to rewrite the SAPI5 routine to support SAPI4.

However, you should be able to find some documentation on SAPI4 and SAPI5 at Microsoft's homepage.

Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard

  Hi Peter

   

  Thanks for replying to my last email. I still have a bit of a problem, the line I found in the script was the following.

  spkr.Rate = 1. '-10 <--> +10

  This seemed to be different to the one that you said I Should find but if this is all fine then what part of the

  spkr.Rate = 1. '-10 <--> +10 line do I have to edit.

  Also what part of the script do I have to edit to use SAPi 4 instead of SAPI 5.

  All help greatly appreciated.

  Cheers Daniel

  Hello Daniel

   

  1. Yes you can. Just look for the following line:

   

   spkr.Rate = 2. '-10 <--> +10

  2. As far I know Eloquence isn't available as standalone SAPI5 voice. But you can modify voiceutils.vbs to use SAPI4 instead of SAPI5.

    Subject: Sapi 5 voices

     

    Hi I have downloaded the voice box script and selected Microsoft Mary from the control panel as the computers default voice.

    I have a few questions.

     

    1. Can I speed up or slow down my talking mp3 clips in rockbox by adjusting the speed of the default voice in the control panel, and if this doesn't work is there another way to speed up or slow them down?

    2. Is it possible to get eloquence as a Sapi 5 voice or, is there any free Sapi 5 voices that I could get apart from Microsoft Mary Sam and Mike to create my talking mp3 clips for rockbox, and if so where would I get them from?

     

    All help greatly appreciated.

    Cheers Daniel
