This tutorial to allows user to use existing Microsoft Speech Server voices to be used with Microsoft SAPI/LINKS.


  1. Close LINKS.
  2. Download and install x86_SpeechPlatformRuntime\SpeechPlatformRuntime.msi from here
  3. Download and install following files from here
    ► Show Spoiler
  4. To show the voices in LINKS, run the attached .reg file.
  5. Start LINKS.

Notes:
If new voice seems to speak a bit slow, then close LINKS, press Win + R and type or copy/paste "%AppData%\Roaming\LINKS\Customization\XML\" and press enter then delete "VoiceConfig.xml". Then press Win+R and type or copy/paste "%windir%\SysWow64\speech\speechux\sapi.cpl" and press enter, then select the voice that is slow, and move the speed slider 4 points to the right, click apply then click OK.
