Hi there this is an old thread. i have to resurrect it again. i have a problem here. I have found Speech SDK 5.1 , French Agent and a Lang_Pack for french. But i don't know how to implement it. My resources recommend me to do a Text to Speech in french. The thing is i have installed the lang_pack french and i have added its components in my VS 2003 Vb.net but i can't get the particular Speak and getvoice functions of it. Has anybody done a TTS in French? if you have let me know ASAP.
