  Hi everyone,

  I realize that sygwin is the way to go when using voices or generating them. However, I'm using voicebox at the moment. It works well, except that it won't pick up my other non-microsoft voices for some reason. Can anyone lend me some assistance? I am changing the default voice in the control pannel of windows, which worked for someone else I know. The voices for the .talk clips are using microsoft mary I think, no matter what my default voice is.
  Hi Kim

  By default most of the voiceutils.vbs scripts default to using the MS default voice so what you need to do is first of all run the list voices vbs script to list all the voices on your system taking note of the three character code for your particular voice you want to use. I use the Australian real speak voices and the code for them is C09. Once you have established the three character code you then need to go ahead and modify the voiceutils.vbs script to include the voice you want. You are looking for the line that looks something like the following

   Set spkr.Voice = spkr.GetVoices("Language=C09").Item(0)

  Note the C09 in the line denoting that I want to use the Australian real speak voice. If it is defaulting to MS marry then I think what will be there is 409. Edit this line and save the file and you should be good to go.
