The information in this article applies to:

  • SpeechKit 5


Licensed SAPI 5 Acapela voices enumerate properly and can be selected via SetStringProperty, but do not speak.


Attempting to set a licensed SAPI 5 Acapela voice as the default voice fails because of the way Acapela implemented its tokens to support its licensing scheme.


Fixed in SpeechKit 5 build (Win32).
