Changing voices

Is there a way to change the voice in an event?

Yes, you use SAPI tags such as
Code:
<voice required="name = Microsoft David Desktop">The house lights will turn off in ten minutes
within the speech text using any of the installed voice names.

If your HS server is windows, this will change it just for this event:
Code:
<voice required="name = Microsoft Sam"> This is Home sear speaking
Be sure to spell the voice exactly as it exists in your system. [My misspelling of Homeseer is intentional. It makes HS pronounce it more properly.]

Thank you for the responses.

I tried the settings suggested and no joy.

In Win7 control panel I only see Anna.

In AirPlay Speak,p I can choose Anna, Allison or Damien.

Allison and Damien are Cepstral voices.

I wanted to change the voice on certain events to Damien for Halloween.

You might try it as "Cepstral Damien". There seem to be some strange things that happen with the Cepstral voices not showing even though they're installed, but evidently you can get them to work at least in some parts of HS3. Try as a forum search on "cepstral voices". If you're running on Windows 10, see this post for how to see all the installed voices. http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=181553 OOps, never mind - I missed where you said Window 7.

for the tags to work with AirplaySpeak you have to add a special setting in AirplaySpeak.ini

Code:
[TTS] 
use_sapi=True
see this thread:
