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.

How to change system default voice


Go to your control panel and select "Speech". Under Voice Selection, you can select the voice you want to use. By default, there is only one voice available in Windows XP called Microsoft Sam. Additional voices can be downloaded from various Web sites.

Check if you have a proper "Audio Output" selected and installed, maybe is disabled.

Maybe you need to install something,

here is the Speech SDK 5.1

My nuvi 200w had voice yesterday, but today won't talk to me. I have the mute box unchecked and have also tried it in the checked position as well. No luck. Roger


Try changing the announcer's voice first to see if you have any sound. To do this tap TOOLS - SETTINGS - LANGUAGE on your main screen.

Try a couple of different voices. Select ones that end in TTS (Text-To-Speech)

If you still do not have any sound, check again that the mute box is not checked and increase the volume to 100%.

If that doesn't do it, reset the unit to factory default settings.

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
