The VoiceBox script supports SAPI5 only, so you can't use SAPI4
voices. Unlike one might think, SAPI5 is not just a newer
version of the speech api, but it also has a very different
It would be possible to extend the script to support SAPI4
voices as well, but:
- The script would need its own voice selector and store the
selected voice in its .ini file. This would be a good idea
anyway, instead of relying on the speech panel setting.
- When used from a script, SAPI4 only allows realtime operation.
That means, if you generate clips for 1000 files and folders
with an average lenght of 2 seconds, the script will take
more than 2000 seconds (33 minutes).
