Not quite true, as I heard different voices long time ago, but maybe not all options are actually implemented. What was the code you tried? How about a short sample?

Hey

Thanks for quick response


My code is

try
{
switch (comboBox1.SelectedItem.ToString())
{
case "NotSet":
voice.SelectVoiceByHints(VoiceGender.NotSet);
break;
case "Male":
voice.SelectVoiceByHints(VoiceGender.Male);
break;
case "Female":
voice.SelectVoiceByHints(VoiceGender.Female);
break;
case "Neutral":
voice.SelectVoiceByHints(VoiceGender.Neutral);
break;
}


voice.Volume = trackBar1.Value;
voice.Rate = trackBar2.Value;


voice.SpeakAsync(richTextBox1.Text);
Pause.Enabled = true;
Stop.Enabled = true;


but in response i am getting same voice....

Am i missing something??????

I only have Microsoft Anna installed by default on Windows 7--I'd guess you're experiencing the same: if the gender/age/whatever you choose isn't available, it gives you what it's got. Not certain how you get more, but I'd bet on installing the SDK: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10121[^]
