Re: eSpeak NG Windows Builds

Karl Eick

Code factory has a setting for its eloquence for sapi 5 where you can
set stuff like that, including the voice variant. Maybe one voice can be
added, and then have a settings dialogue to customize the parameters,
which this one voice uses then. The problem is of course, that the
language of the voice in sapi 5 can't be changed then. Or maybe it can?
Don't know programming terribly well.

Hi Reece,

The old espeak installer used a text box where the people where able
to specify which languages they wanted.
for example
de en fr+max es+robert
installed german and english base voices, and french was installed
with the max variant and spanish came with robert variant.

Otherwise i guess that  might be getting to complicated at the moment.

or making a main listbox with an add and remove button where then a
dialog box comes up where you can select language and variant and then
in the main listbox where that was added you might see that then.
sorry for being that complicated. *smile*

There is experimental support that is commented out of the installer
which enables the English voice (search for SAPI Voices in the
Product.wxs file). It has some issues (like the last part of the
audio clipping). I'm also not sure what the best way of selecting the
different languages is, as installing 100+ SAPI voices is a bit
excessive, and that does not cover the different voice variants and
MBROLA voices. I've not had time to look into it properly.

Kind regards,

But if you know someone who has the knowledge in that i guess that guy

Hi Simon.
I have got the sapi5 version of espeak but since it was never built
for 64
bit systems, it is not recognised from some apps including narrator
windows 10.
Thanks a lot

Hi Nikos,

There was, as far as i know, never a sapi 5 version of espeak ng.
But you can use the sapi 5 version of espeak.
