Please use the improve question link and post the code you are using.

Then i should say you use SpVoice,but you don't know about it's features.
SpVoice.Speak() method can be called synchronously or asynchronously. When called synchronously, the method does not return until the text has been spoken; when called asynchronously, it returns immediately, and the voice speaks as a background process.
So use asynchronous method instead of synchronous,your problem should be solved.Use SpeechVoiceSpeakFlags.SVSFlagsAsync as like ase..
SpVoice voice = new SpVoice ();
 voice.Speak ("An example of SpVoice.",SpeechVoiceSpeakFlags.SVSFlagsAsync);

Below code is a part of one of my project...
I use SpeechSynthesizer class of System.Speech dll.
Create an instance like..
SpeechSynthesizer synthesis=new SpeechSynthesizer();

Then for speech conversion i use..
synthesis.SpeakAsync(richTextBox1.Text);//speaks the text

To stop speech i use..
synthesis.Dispose();//stops the synthesizer hence the speech!

how to stop the speech

See my updated solution for you.
You can stop speech by using

Voice.Speak("", SpeechVoiceSpeakFlags.purgebeforespeak)

If you choose to do 'Voice.Dispose' or 'Voice = Nothing' then be sure to recreate it before trying to use it again.

If Voice = Nothing then
Voice = New SpVoice
End If
