WYNN Tip: Changing Speech Drivers in WYNN 5.0 and Earlier

WYNN comes with two speech synthesizers, IBM’s ViaVoice and AT&T Natural Voices. If you choose the “typical” install, ViaVoice is enabled by default. Once you have installed the AT&T voices, you may switch between the two synthesizers at any time while using WYNN.

  1. Go to the Settings menu.
  2. Choose Retrieve Settings.
  3. Choose AT&T Speech or ViaVoice Speech.
  4. Click the OK button.

If you wish to explore the voices or other languages(1) that come with each synthesizer, or any of the other speech settings:

  1. Go to the Settings menu.
  2. Choose Speech Settings.
  3. Choose the Synthesizer, then the Language you wish to use.
  4. Use the Test button to try out your new settings.
  5. Click the OK button to change or the Cancel button to go back to your previous settings.

Note: Whatever settings are in effect when you exit WYNN will be enabled next time you log in. These settings will remain until you change them.

(1) U.S. English and Spanish are automatically installed with Via Voice during the WYNN installation process. Additional ViaVoice languages can be installed choosing “Custom” install, or reinserting the program CD. AT&T voices are installed from a separate CD that ships with the WYNN program CD.
