Posted on 2007-07-29

I have installed the Microsoft Speech Program/Tools called Microsoft Speech SDK 5.1.  I have also installed the Language Pack.  

The voices called LH Michael and LH Michelle do not work; however the other voices work (such as Microsoft Mike, Microsoft Mary etc.).  What do you suggest that I do to have the the LH Michael and LH Michelle voices work?

    I found this link....

    Which suggests that the speachh kit only comes with  Sam, Mike, and Mary

    And further suggests

    Find the elusive "LH Michelle" and "LH Michael" by installing Microsoft Reader and the TTS add-on.

    So we know one thing for sure "they are elusive", try leaving a bag of nuts out maybe they may come out from hiding.......only joking.....
