Mike,
If you run Stascome from the start menu, you can arrow down to configuration manager, and down the list is notification voice parameters.
There you can select a voice and more.

Hi Mike,
I just looked at my Stascom configuration report, and it reads that my speech engine is VW Paul
Interesting report with a surprising amount of detail...

Subject: [jaws-users] Jaws and Stascom

Hi All,
 
I'm giving this Stascom program a go and so far I like it but, I get this message when doing certain tasks like restarting the computer:
 
Alert
Stascom was unable to speak a notification through the selected SAPI5
engine. Please choose a different engine from the Stascom Configuration
Manager under "Notification settings."
 
The only option I get is Microsoft Anna in the notification settings.  Can anyone tell the list how to change to a different speech engine / synthesizer than the SAPI5 Microsoft Anna?  All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go Dodgers!
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
