So I've been on 920 for about a week now. Everything seems to be working Except my text to speech.

I have moved from Win 7 to Win 10.
I tried to have the CQC service logon as a local account and also as my windows account.
I know the hardware is fine as I've been using it for years - other than the win version.

Here is a sample of code:

If
System::IsInTimeRange
    P1=6
    P2=23

If
System::Equals
    P1=%(StdRTV:Minute)
    P2=0
    P3=No Case

Devices::FieldWrite
    P1=CQC-TTS.SayText
    P2=The Time is %(StdRTV:HHMM), and the temperature is $(DarkSky.CurTemp)
    P3=False

Else

If
System::Equals
    P1=%(StdRTV:Minute)
    P2=30
    P3=No Case

Devices::FieldWrite
    P1=CQC-TTS.SayText
    P2=The Time is %(StdRTV:HHMM), and the temperature is $(DarkSky.CurTemp)
    P3=False

Else

End

End

Else

End


I also just tried to reconfigure both the TTS driver and Speech driver. I could not complete the configuration because no voices are listed. I have three voices installed and when testing via system/speech they work just fine.

Any Ideas ???

Thanks
As of Windows 10 you have to use the Speech II driver, because we can no longer do TTS in the background. Instead the Speech II driver creates WAV files from the text and uses the media player system to play them, which does work.

It also offers more capabilities as well since we have more control over the playback.
I tried that but I cannot install that driver. The installation program does not see the voices, even though they work fine outside of CQC, and therefor will not proceed past that point.
Is there something that is in the latest windows version that prevents it?
Update:
Tried on two different machines with brand new fresh Win10 20H2 installs.
Same thing on both. Cannot install driver because the installer cannot find voices.
There's a page in the installer where it shows you what to install on that front. You are probably still using the old style TTS support while we use the newer stuff. Run the installer again and uncheck the 'use previous options'. One of the pages will have links to the stuff you need to install (assuming you haven't already.)
Ok I did that. I don't use Kinect, but tried to install the Microsoft Speech Platform Runtime. The link seems to be dead. Comes back with 404 error.
Did searches for it also and version 11 does not seem to be available.
Do you have a link to a good copy of the 32 bit version of the runtime?
Not sure what's going on. This is version 10 of the engine and it has a link saying go here for the latest version 11, but that doesn't work, and none of the links I found for version 11 work.

And here are the version 10 languages.

Give the above ones a shot. They will probably be fine. Let me know if not.
I have the downloads (circa 2017), and they work fine on the latest version of Windows 10 - 20H2.  If you message me with your email, your email can accept 22 MB files, and also don't have a server that kicks out .msi files, I can send them to you.

 Thanks kblagron

I will message you my email. If you can change the extension or zip them I will change it back or send in separate files.

Just as a sanity check can you try to reconfigure you speech engine and see if you run into the same problem or does it go through?
