You can do it very easily of you use System.Speech.Synthesis. You will need to reference the assembly "System.Speech.dll" which comes with .NET (a part of its FCL), so it is placed on GAC, so you reference it by the tab ".NET" of the Visual Studio window "Add Reference".
 
You can only choose one of the predefined voices installed on the system, if I'm not much mistaken.

I already have a TTS but the voice output is like robot the reason why I want to create my own TTS using my own voice.
But is it possible to create my own TTS using my own voice?
or modifying the voice embedded in speech library, just in case I cannot change the voice ouput of speech library.?

I don't think you can make better voice. This just reflects the level of technology. If you want to try, please see lower-level, SAPI.

But is it possible to use my voice as the output voice of my system?

I don't think so. How can you imagine that?

when i saw a TTS system using their own language and voice, so i thought it is possible to make my own TTS using my own voice.:)

I don't see why could you see it this way...

I don't know, it looks very interesting and if i can create this kind of system, i can use it in our school for our project. which the deadline is the last day of this month, april. :))

Well, just using synthesis is not a problem, not a problem at all.
 
But! — as to the using your own or any other voice as a model: some years of work by a very talented scientist (not just "programmer"), as a minumum. Maybe, validity of my estimate is low, but this is my current estimate. I would be very surprised if anyone says it would be easier than that; and I would be ready to listen only to a person who had considerable advancement in this field... Now decide what to do by yourself. I would advice just to take my estimate (and accept the answer formally, green button — thanks).
 
Wish you the best of luck,

Ok, thanks for advice.
But i like the most the solution of onurag19.:))
Thank you again.

What difference does it make? I don't insist, but that's just the reference to someone else's article. It's fine, deserved being accepted, but you can accept any number of answers. All you really need is the original documentation. No pressure at all, I don't care much about it.
Good luck,

Thank you onurag19, this is a great help for my project.:))
But is it still possible to create my own tts using my own voice?
or is it possible to create different output voices in speech library.?
because my project is all about room conversation where i need a lot of voices to be outputted of my system.
is it possible?

I think you should google it out.

I asked already my best-friend "GOOGLE" about this but he is not certain about what i'm looking for.
One time he led me in a site but it is just all about rate and pitches..:)))
