Audio Voice under Windows 10


(Patrick K) #1

Hello QGroundControl users,

has anybody an idea how to change AUDIO VOICE from QGC under windows 10?
unfortunately my Windows 10 installation is german.
the voice output is a female voice with german accent.

I set under time&language everything to english/US but it still gives me this silly voice.

any tipps are highly welcome.

Patrick

I had a similar issue, in my case it was because I’m using a 64 bit version of Windows. Mission Planner is obviously 32Bit and the Control Panel of a 64 Windows allows only settings for the 64Bit Voices. Solution is described here:

Summary: Look for this file: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Speech\SpeechUX\sapi.cpl and doubleclick it. Set the voice here and MP talkes proper english instead of (my case) english with a german accent.
