Hello Hamish

No, the rate adjustment in SAPI5 is slightly different but similar from the method used in SAPI4.

In SAPI5 use the rate property to change the rate. I can't remember whether the rate adjust refer to the number of spoken words per minute.

Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard

  Hi Peter

  Would inserting that line also work for a SAPI 5 voice such as scansoft lee and would the figure of 360 work for a scansoft voice or does it need to be adjusted and is the 360 a words per minute speed?

    Hello Grant

    From my own makevoices.vbs file

    MakeVoiceFileSAPI4 "english", "Reed", 10, "--cbr -B 16 --
    resample 12 --scale 0.6 -t -S --priority 0"


    In order to adjust speech rate insert the following line after BDone = false.

    oTTS.Speed = 360

    Best Wishes,
    Peter Herngaard

      What is the optimal line to insert into the MakeVoices script for building a voicefile with the Reed voice, which is SAPI4? Thanks.
