If you are looking for Voices Great Deal Sapi5 (compatible with P2ATC)

Recommended Posts

Don't normally do this but I was looking for voices and stunbled into www.cereproc.com  I just can't handle the charges for Ivona  (although they are good) limited funds as a senior lol  but from what I see these are super quality for HALF price $16.00 USD..normally $32.00 or more usd.  You can download and listen to any voice first. It will be under Downloads/Music folder  Have osx and windows and other format if interested.

 

On there website  price only good thru December. Based I believe out of Scotland. So bear in mind time difference.  I downloaded maybe 8-10 voices.

 

Well anyway..Enjoy the Holidays!!  The voice Heather (Scottish English) is Hot..lol

I got an answer from there support in about 15 minutes. My question was about soundcards and the best setup for output:

 

48kHz/16Bit/Mono PCM

if that makes sense :)

I am going to buy a couple in the sale too, problem deciding which one though!

 

Also, anybody know how to use Windows 10 Mobile voices in P2A, I have about 5 voices there I could use, but I am told the Mobile ones only work in Cortana.

 

Somebody must have figured a workaround??

Following the tip off here I just purchased 4 of these voices, but there seems to be a problem. The keycodes are supplied by email and state they should be inserted during the installation process.

 

But there is no installation process, and the file types are unrecognised. Looking at properties for each voice download shows them as 'cereproc executable for MSI bundles'. Strange.

 

Can anyone explain how and where you installed these voices. There is no information on their website.

 

I'm on Win7 64bit.   I already use TextAloud for text to voice applications and the AT&T voices I use with that were very simple to install.

Hi John,

 

Hmm - strange - I recall it went smooth on both my old Vista box and my Win 10x64 box... It was a few weeks ago but I do recall needing the key codes to activate them... I didn't do anything special - just clicked on the installer - ZIP file ? Did you unzip to temp folder ?

Scott

I bought 4 of them, but after setting them up in P2A the program freezes when trying to connect to the sim.

Hi...

 

I seem to recall seeing a post where I believe the developer mentioned addressing Ceraproc voices... Someone else confirmed they work great with MCE...

when you download file, right click and install as administrator..when it starts to install...a window will pop up and you copy and paste the keycode...(which are in your email) beginning right under top line and above bottom line of the right!! person you downloaded...click ok and it will launch an installer and should take but a second to install and finish. I have windows 7x64...But I do have the freeze issue as I posted in a separate post but do not know how to paste the log file..I get a windows AppHangB1 error. But these are Sapi5 and should work fine.  They do work with the other program V..........7.2 lol  but I personally like this program better :)

 

They download from CereProc website as an executable and you do not have to unzip. After you set up your account..will be under "file tab"

So Adam, Lauren, Jack and Jess ( all SAPI5 ) won't work with P2A?

In my personal opinion..i think Dave will fix it..(if it has something to do with P2ATC. I hope.... but hey you get them for 50% percent off and you can always use them for something else lol.  I bought probably 8-10 voices for myself for "being a good boy"... I could not afford Ivona.  You got to get Heather...she is fantastic..she can read you stories :)

Is it possible you've bought the ones for a MAC?

I actually have nothing else to use them and bought them only because of P2A :( 

 

I kind of wish you'd mentioned this in your first post.

Sorry but I do have a separate post about this issue just above or below this new post about the voices. I think we will get it sorted out....

Thanks Scott and Denco.   Soon after posting about not being able to install these voices, I realised what the problem was.

 

I had been using Internet Explorer 11 which I don't always use.  I had forgotten that Microsoft, with their bizarre logic, had programmed IE 11 to delete file extensions from downloaded files.  

So I had the correct files, but they were missing the dot exe on the end. I Simply had to rename them to add dot exe and problem solved.

 

Anyway, I  mention this in case it applies to others.

I have used three Cereproc voices with P2ATC. All have been successful (Adam, Jess and Stuart) I have just purchased two more in the sale but I have not tried them yet.

I had only one problem when one of the P2ATC updates stopped the 'Pilot' voice (the one that you use to reply to the ATC) from working and it reverted to Microsoft Anna.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 2.1.0.1 update. So.. Hurrah!

I use Windows 7 64bit and X-Plane

Cheers

Has anyone else been able to get these to work on Win8, 8.1 or 10?

Does anyone have Win7x64 and is not able to get them to work?

 

I have a note into Cereproc Support and would like to know the details of where they work and where they don't.

 

Thanks,

Dave

I've been trying yesterday and had no success, as you already know ( win10 user ). I really do wonder if the voices are Win10 incompatible, but I kind of doubt it though since all of the voices work when testing them in windows speech recognition settings.

Hi Folks,

I have them loaded on Win10x64 and Vista - albeit - I use them with Voice Attack (makes for a pretty good copilot) where they work fine... I also know someone who uses them with MCE regularly...

Scott

Maybe a suggestion: would be a few of us (Dave has already done) send an inquiry to CereProc about the voices crashing in Flight Sim program. They are Sapi5 and compatible for win7 8 10 and maybe they will take a serious look at it...and maybe figure out why. Just a thought. That you are thinking about or have already purchased their voices and they are of no value if they don't work.

Dave..I sent the four images I sent you to CereProc support through my login as a customer to see if there is a connection. Microsoft Edge or internet explorer running in background and causing P2atc to crash. May be nothing.  I would post images here but don't know how..lol   Got note from Dave and he thinks it seems to be an incompatibility with Microsofts Desktop Synthesizer.

Incompatibility between P2A and Microsoft Desktop Synthesizer or CereProc voices and Microsoft Desktop Synthesizer?

what he seems to think...Guess we'll hear back from CereProc soon about this. I shot some images but I was thinking that Microsoft Edge or Internet explorer running in background (in task manager)was eating up the resources so I don't know. I sent him the images and he responded that he thought it might be a  Microsoft Desktop Synthesizer issue..

I just got Sue and Heather, and I recognize Sue from MCE.

 

I want to try them with VAC.

Hi Bob,

Yeah - Voice Attack is probably the best $10.00 I've spent on FS... It's a little utility that just recognizes speech input and sends keystrokes or macros based on said input... It also utilizes the MS Speech engine to talk to you and give verbal feedback... The only caveat - natively - it doesn't "read" anything from FS - so it's not going to know actual switch states or conditions of your flight... I've tried others like VAC/GlovePie but I've found Voice Attack has the - best - most intuitive interface for setting up configs for FS... I use it as a virtual copilot for aircraft certified for two pilot operation... It does things like turn on the autopilot with all the correct modes selected - bring up flaps and gear - read me checklists on respective regimes of flight - etc etc etc... I use it to verbally control RC4 so I don't have to hunt for key presses - just say "tower", "clearance", "roger wilco", etc - works like a champ... In addition - even if you have no interest in voice control - it can assign the same commands to joysticks or keyboards - so it makes every joystick a programmable joystick... It's one slick piece of kit... Disclaimer - I'm in no way associated with the company - just one very happy customer...
