    Dear Nassimjd, Thank you for your post.
    Latest Version: I have
    installed the latest version of TextAloud which is 2.3. Salma Youssef
    voices has unique version. There is a system to register a voice in
    Windows xp to get the voice available in any interface. I am looking
    for that. Best regards,

Did you install the latest version of the software try looking for a windows XP version of the Acapella Multimedia. Another thing is that maybe the the salma and youssef sounds only work with the software, to help protect their software.

    if I understand you, you could try to record in another open program, try Sony Sound Forge, while Salma or Sami or any voice is being run, this way you can record and save in any format you want.

I can't access Nuance Dragon naturallyspeaking 10 Speech to text


If you have a non trial version of it, I'd try uninstalling and re-installing the program. Many programs will save personal configurations when you uninstall the program, so it is possible that you wouldn't need to make it learn your voice again. I've never used this particular software though so I can't offer any personal experience on it.

The speech recognition that is built into Widnows 7 is great though. I've used it and think it works very well. You can go through a tutorial and read to it for it to learn your voice.

How to change the voice on garmin 750? /


Press the wrench/tools button at the main menu. Select the icon with the lips (language). You should see (2) buttons labeled American English. The first one makes all of the text on the Nuvi in the English alphabet. The second button is for the voice. If it just says "American English", then it will only say "Left" or "Right". Press this button and select a TTS voice (Text to Speech), like Jill, Jack, Daniel.....etc.

TomTom XL Text-to-Speech not working


I had the same problem, before realising that text-to-speech on the TomTom XL on'y works if you've selected a *computer-generated" voice - and not all of them are. "Samantha/English-US" is computer-generated, for example, but "Tim/English-UK" is not (it's a recorded voice). When choosing from options in the "Change voice" menu option, check the top-right hand corner to tell whether a voice is computer-generated or not. Hope this helps.

Garmin 350 sat nav stuck on wrong language can it be changed back to english


What have you tried to do to change it back? Have you tried changing the setting in the menu?
Press the wrench symbol and then the symbol with the lips.

There are 2 settings that need to be changed.
1. Text language (displays the text using characters of the chosen language)
2. TTS (text to speech - the actual speaking voices)

No, it is not possible to configure the unit to do something it is not designed to do. The text to speech feature utilizes a computerized voice with pre-programmed street names. Your unit does not contain this programming.

Text to speech does not work on my Garmin Nuvi 350T. How do I activate this?


Oddly enough I had the same problem with the 260W. What the skimpy documentation doesn't say is that the voice you select must have the letters TTS next to it. Otherwise you just get the voice and no street names.

Changing Microsoft default voice


Use the Speech Engine Configurations tab of the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in for Microsoft Speech Server (MSS) 2004 to change the default voice used by applications for text-to-speech (TTS) processing, or to specify an application-specific TTS voice.
This is the voice that callers hear when an application must synthesize speech output rather than use prerecorded prompts. For more information, see the section on the prompt engine in the topic Producing Speech Output.
To modify the default voice
  1. Open the MMC Administration console. (For instructions,
    To open the MMC Administration console for MSS
    1. Click Start.
    2. Select All Programs, Microsoft Speech Server 2004, and then click MSS Management Console.
      Note If you do not have Administrator rights on the computer you are using to open MMC, you will be prompted to enter a valid Administrator ID and password)

  2. In the console tree, expand the applicable group.
  3. In the details pane, double-click the computer running SES to open the SES properties page.
  4. Click the Speech Engine Configurations tab.
  5. Under Engine Configurations:, select DefaultVoice.
  6. In the Engine Name drop-down list, select the voice to use for all applications by default.

260 not calling out street names


- Amazingly, the 260 does not come with Text-To-Speech turned on. The whole point of the upgrade to the 260 is text-to-speech (TTS). So go into the settings and go to "Voice", and choose an English voice with "TTS" in the title. The default voice does tell you to "turn right in point three miles", and all GPS receivers with voice prompting will do this, but that's not Text-To-Speech. TTS actually pronounces (or does the best it can) at pronouncing street names. So instead of "turn right", you get "Turn right on Jackson street".

Garmin Nuvi 260 - how to activate text to speech


Question: How do I change the Voice Language setting on my nuvi 2xx?
--> Answer: All of the Garmin® automotive GPS units that speak street names are also loaded with basic voice prompts (example: Turn Right in 500 feet) as well as Text-to-Speech (TTS) voices that speak street names. If one of the basic types of voice prompts has been selected, the voice prompts will not speak street names. In order to change this setting on the nüvi® 2xx series, follow these steps:
  1. In the Main Menu, touch Tools (Wrench icon).
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Press the Down arrow in the bottom right corner.
  4. Select Language.
  5. The first line on this screen is the Voice language. Touch the Current Voice option for the GPS device listed to change the Voice.
  6. Select a Voice that is labeled TTS. These will speak street names. Options without the TTS label will say the distance until the next turn, but will not include the street name.
  7. Select OK. The Voice has now been changed.
The device should now speak street names. This is tghe solution that I found on the Garmin site. It worked for my device. Hope this is helpful. solution = solution1description.innerHTML; Last modified on: 04/14/2008
