Microsoft Speech Server 10.2 better than 10.1

As I indicated in this previous post, if you want Text-To-Speech in another language than English, you have to install Microsoft Speech Server. And I gave the link to install the v10.1 I had installed and planned to use for my French conference session.

Well, it happened that when I wanted to do the Delphi Prism demo, with the .Net API, it was nowhere to be found on my machine. I tried to install and re-install multiple times the runtime and the SDK: Microsoft.Speech.dll refused to be installed.

Fortunately, I found the newer 10.2 version, and this one did install correctly and I could record my .Net demo.

Unfortunately, the stupid bug where SpeechSynth is not able to send the audio stream to the standard audio output is still there!

    Hi Francois,
    I apologize for asking a beginner question, but I am creating a translation application and have installed Microsoft Speech Server. I have also installed a Spanish voice. But I have no idea how to change voices, or populate a combobox with all the voices. I plan on using a Jap and Korean voice too. Thanks so much!
