Audible alerts via TTS or similar
We do create files. That's what I was talking about. Normally you don't need that. It's a lot of overhead and slows things down a lot. Normally you just feed the text to the engine and it comes out the audio output directly. But, at some point along the line, in their infinite wisdom, MS stopped allowing that to happen in the background where the drivers run. So the speech driver has to create a file, then play it back via a media player instance. Bizarrely that is allowed in the background which makes not allowing TTS not make any sense given that you can still do it, you have to just do it far less efficiently.
