#355 Text-To-Speech language override

Mumble (514)

When UI is only English, Text-To-Speech function is correctly pronounced.
I understand that Text-To-Speech can't read the languages other than English.

Even if I have selected UI of the languages other than English, does not Text-To-Speech not come to pronounce the message in English?

    TTS can handle any language you have an installed TTS engine for. For example, my TTS setup reads Norwegian.

    In Japan, TTS engine is so expensive. (about 50 US$

    The latest edition of Microsoft Office don't bundle Japanese TTS engine .

    so , most Mumble user in Japan uses English TTS engine which included in Windows OS.

    If it is possible, I want you to enable the language that TTS reads out to be changed.

    There's no TTS engine included in mumble, and probably won't be.
    You'll have to find your own engine (buy or free).
    Mumble only hooks up the installed engines and uses them / sends them the data.
    As slicer stated, this works (at least for him) with other languages than english.

    i dont understand all of this here, but if you search for a free engine, is it helpfully to look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech_synthesis

    I think that it is not transmitted to want to say.

    I want TTS to read the languages other than being set to UI.

    I configure Japanese as UI language, but TTS engine read English UI text.

    I do not hope any further if this cannot not be easily done.

    UI in one language and TTS in another. Isn't that a bit annoying (I doubt you chat in english, do you?).

    ps: I updated the ticket title, didn't know what was in there as it was before.
