Windows 7 64 Bit Voices

I am going crazy looking at info on how to get other voices besides Anna on the computer. I have Windows 7 64 and SAPI voices are mostly for 32 bit Windows. I installed several free voices that were obviously for 32 and a lower ver of SAPI, and would not show up. Is there anyone who can point me to SAPI voices that work with 64 bit ver of Windows. I am looking for a voice for my android. I found a few I like but do not want to purchase them if they only work on 32 bit versions.


Upgrade to ARC Pro

ARC Pro will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!


There's some info on the ? page of the Speech Settings control:

I've used them in the past with success


Thanks I will check those out. I finally found several other sources that support Windows 7 64. Ivona has some of the most natural sounding. Also CereProc has some great voices. Thanks again for the info.

Cereproc Voices work with Win 7 64 bit. I've not tested in ARC as the only PC I have at home that runs 64 bit Windows is the one I use for work so don't want to add anything else to it.

I know the voices work in ARC with Windows 7 32 bit. They work in Windows 7 64 bit through windows and EventGhost so I imagine they will work in ARC (but may need some settings played with a little to get it working). I couldn't get it working in Windows 8 but I hadn't tried very hard.

They also have some awesome voices that have amazing pronunciation and accents (you can sample each voice on their site). They aren't free but if I was willing to buy one then they must be good - I don't buy anything!.. My computer uses William for other reasons (home automation, think Jarvis in Ironman movies)


Edit: Wrong url for voices. Updated below. Ceraproc Voices


Yes I really like William alot. Prolly the most realist voices Ive heard for 45 bucks.

Yeah, not cheap but worth it... provided they work with 64 bit and ARC. I may test them out if you are thinking of using a cereproc voice, I'd hate for you to buy one only for it not to work, let me know if you are going down that route and I'll throw ARC on the work PC.
