    is it possible to use NeoSpeech voices with HS4?

    I purchased the NeoSpeech voices (Kate&Paul") many years ago through HomeSeer. Is it possible to use them with HS 4 on Windows 10? If so, is there any trick to the install?

      my wife is a bit jealous of Kate. I told her what she looks like (in my imagination).

        I am away from home, but I run Kate on Windows 10.
        I don't think she shows up in Windows TTS, but works with the HS4 speaker client.
        You may have to install with compatibility mode.
        Copy the install files from the CD to a temp directory on the hard drive, then go for the compatibility install.

          The NeoSpeech voices run in 32 bit mode. Speaker dot exe runs in 32 bit mode and you will be able to see the Neospeech voices.

          In Windows 10 you can run the 32 bit speech control panel file...C:\Windows\System32\Speech\SpeechUX\sapi.cpl to see your NeoSpeech files.

          Here run a Windows 7 E virtual box with multiple speech fonts on the Linux HS4 Pro box.

                I've installed the NeoSpeech voices successfully. The install went normally. Once installed, edit the speaker client and choose the desired voice and it was done. Nice to have Kate back!

                  LOL! I think you're risking your WAF with that!

                    sorry, I didn't see your request about pictures before I finished the install. I didn't do anything special. There are 2 CDs. One says "put me in first", so I did. It then asks for the second CD; I put it in and hit enter and it completed the install. They you open the speaker client that's already running and select which voice you want. Piece of cake.

                      Haha, if you've met Kate, you know that it's worth it! My wife's grown "fond" of her over the many years. I'm fortunate that neither of them age!
