Need help with win32-sapi


#1

Hi all,

I try to do some ‘text to speach’ stuff using win32-sapi.

I run the example from the rdoc but I get the error info. I wonder how
to fix it.

Thanks,

Li

Hi all,

I solve this problem by myself as following(it crosses my mind when I
read other articles on the internet):

Start>control panel>Speech on Xp or(text to speech on vista)>Voice
selection>apply

Then run the script above and it works!!! I guess I don’t set up the
voice correctly at the beginning.
