I want to convert japanese text to speech using microsoft speech sdk 5.1. I have found there 5 kinds of voices including simplified chinese. Chinese text to speech works fine.

foreach (ISpeechObjectToken Token in speech.GetVoices(string.Empty, string.Empty))
                string str = Token.GetDescription(49).ToString();
                if (str.Equals("Microsoft Simplified Chinese"))
                    speech.Voice = speech.GetVoices(string.Empty, string.Empty).Item(3);//Item(cmbVoices.SelectedIndex);
                // Populate the ComboBox Entries ..

In the documentation of Microsoft speech sdk I have found that the sdk supports Japanese text.

How can I convert Japanese text to speech?

According to <a href="">this</a>, Japanese is only supported for speech recognition, not text to speech...

You probably might want to put this comment as a solution and expound on it a bit.

There's nothing really to expound on, as far as I know... It's just not supported in that library.
