Re: Change default pc voice in Win7 x64

The default voice in Windows is set on the Windows speech control panel, but
an issue you're going to run into is that 64 bit versions of AT&T voices are
not currently available. On Windows 7 64 bit, click your control panel, and
set the 'View By' to "Category". Then, click "Ease of Access" -> "Speech
Recognition". In the left pane of the Speech Recognition setup, you'll see a
link for 'Text To Speech'. Click that, and you'll be able to configure the
windows default voice for 64 bit applications. This panel will display only
64 bit voices, so AT&T voices will not appear.
To configure the windows default voice for 32 bit voices, click your Start
button, then click Computer. Copy and paste the following into the address
field in Windows Explorer:
This control panel will display your 32 bit voices, and AT&T voices should
appear in this control panel. So you can then set Crystal as the default
voice, but only for 32 bit applications.
