Help with installing extra MS Voices.

Recommended Posts

Hi Dave and fellow P2A users, I am on the last few days of the trial and will definitely buy when it runs out. I am hoping to add a few more MS voices to give a bit more variety, and I know that Dave said in a post you can download extra language and speech packs, which I have done from within the Windows 10 settings page. So at the moment Windows is showing that I have 8 voices installed, all showing them as "Mobile", which I know are not compatible with P2A, but "David,Hazel & Zira", show up in P2A voices as desktop voices, and they are "Mobile" voices according to MS settings, so I am a little confused. So how do I get more MS voices that will show up as desktop voices for P2A ?. I do intend to get some 3rd party voices at a later stage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

John.

Hi Dave, Thanks for the info, and the tutorial, but that's is what I have doing, adding extra language  and speech packs, i.e, English Welsh, English Irish & Australian, but only getting the mobile versions of these voices. Is there a way to find out if a speech pack contains a desktop voice, apart from the Spanish voice.

Thanks,

John.

The only list I've found is one that lists the language packs and says they have voices with them.  I don't know if they are all Desktop voices.  I tried the Danish one and while it downloaded some voices, I believe they were all Mobile.

Here's a link to that site:

O.K, thanks Dave for your help. I will try some more language packs to see if there are any desktop voices in them and if there is I will report via the forum.

Thanks,

John.
