  • Streeetdeck, SAPI and voices

    Lets face it...
    The Microsoft Sam and Ann voices suck.

    I've done some looking and found some voice packs that are supposed to be better, but haven't tried them out. There are some for SAPI4 and SAPI5,b ut I don't know which one SD uses.

    Which one is default in WinXP?
    Is SAPI upgraded with StreetDeck, and if so to what version?
    Lastly, have any of these speech packs been tested with Streetdeck?

    Thanks.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    When StreetDeck ships it will ship with upgraded voices and SAPI version 6.1.

    StreetDeck has been tested with Acapella and AT&T natural voices.

      I use AT&T Crystal16 (cause I got that and several AT&T voices for free with home automation software) and it sounds great.

        Cool. Thanks for the heads up.

        My girlfriend heard the spoken directions for the first time, and was all "What the hell did he say?!!?!?" We both agree that the MS voices both suck.

          I, too, use Crystal and man it is so much more pleasant to hear her voice than the default SAM one.
