    Do you, or anyone know where I can get free alternatives or buy any custom voices that sound more realistic than the microsoft ones?

    Well out of all the confusion, that would sound like the most likely canidate...

    From a quick search, you can buy various voices here: http://www.nextup.com/TextAloud/
    but you have have at least one of their SW's installed to use the voices out side of their SW which allows them to sell them (voices) at a much lower cost then just buying the voices outright which is usually much more costly.

    ???

    See about the logs again, but also have RR's debug on and zip attach all the logs, RRMedia & RR's from a session.

    Thanks for the link.

    Quick question. Long description
    I have been also searching too and it seems like any of the natural sounding voices need a stand alone program for them to work like you said.
    I was trying them out but I still get the DFXSpeak error message (but DFXVoice still works correctly even though I get the error message) after everything is booted up. Which isn't horrible at least it works now but still shows the message.
    It is caused by DFX Skin loading up before the other program is loaded up upon Windows starting up.

    Is there a way to disable the error message, hide it or delay it and or maybe a way to delay RR so the other program has a chance to finish loading up?
    I don't use any greeting upon DFX loading up but when the skin loads it must check (SAPI?) and knows it can't access the voice causing the message.

    Thanks for all your help!!!

    Well, DFXVoice & DFXSpeak do use SAPI, but use totally different parts of it, V Recognition and Text to speech. So just b/c one works doesn't mean the other follow suit. "other program is loaded up upon Windows starting up"??? Does Starting RR after win is finished loading do the same thing?

    RR is in the startup folder so it starts up automatically when Windows boots up. TextAloud is also setup to start automatically within the options of the program. This way I still get the DFXVoice error message when Windows & RR loads up automatically But the DFXVoice part still works. I can ask what time is it etc and it responds like it should. I just have the error message that popped up whe RR first loaded up.
    If I start RR manually after Windows is finished loaded up with TextAloud it works great with no errors.

    It's not that big of deal but would like to hide it-remove it if possible.
    I was hoping for a way to hide the DFXVoice error message or even delay RR OR DFX for a couple seconds to allow Windows to finish loading up TextAloud first so I don't get the error message.

    Thanks

    that load my main screen
    and
    CreateGpsToAdd_Html()

    I had also an old issue when the new format indicators when the indicators are also defined with the IND option !
    So i have modified into the TopIndicators.txt file the lines that follow:
    I01,15,9,40,20,"REPEAT"
    IND,REPEAT,Indicators\REPEAT_Off.png,Indicators\RE PEAT_on.png
    I02,67,9,40,20,"SHUFFLE"

    I03,143,9,40,20,"ONLINE"
    IND,ONLINE,Indicators\WiFi_Off.png,Indicators\WiFi _On.png
    I04,278,9,40,20,"DriveNotification_CD"
    IND,DriveNotification_CD,Indicators\CD_Off.png,Ind icators\CD_On.png
    I05,330,9,40,20,"DriveNotification_DVD"
    IND,DriveNotification_DVD,Indicators\DVD_Off.png,I ndicators\DVD_On.png
    I06,390,9,40,20,"mobilephone_connected"
    IND,mobilephone_connected,Indicators\Phone_Off.png ,Indicators\Phone_On.png
    I07,445,9,40,20,"FBCONNECTED"

    I08,500,9,40,20,"RRSkype"

    I09,555,9,40,20,"RRVM_CheckMaintenance:B",5000,200 ,"Indicators\VehicleMaintenance_*.png"
    With this format my indicators are not superimposed by a bad indicator !
    I don't know if you will accept this new format but that would be a good idea !
