Microsoft TTS Engines

Mary - Female Voice (English) 2.3MB

Mike - Male Voice (English) 2.4MB

Sam - Male Voice (English) 2.1MB

Microsoft Agent can be used with any SAPI 4.0 compatible TTS Engine, including versions of ATT Natural Voices, IBM ViaVoice, Digalo, Elan Speech, and more.  However, support for SAPI 5.0 is not currently supported.

 Speech Recognition Engine (English)

The Speech Recognition Engine is required if you want Microsoft Agent to support speech recognition.  Due to the download size of the Speech Recognition Engine, it was decided not to include it as a part of MASH, but as a separate download.

Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine (English) (6MB)

The Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine does not support dictation, but is used to interact with users through defined command phrases.
