    Question text-to-speech

    anyone have some C or C++ code for text-to-speech that outputs to the sound card and compiles to a size less than 256K?

    if you do, please let me know, i need it for a project I'm working on and it has to fit on a floppy when it's done... thanx!

    So what's with the size? I understand that you want to keep it small but I can't make any guarantees in this department. You can go to M$'s site and get the Speech SDK. It is 60 megs last I checked. The good news is that it comes with some very good sample code. Some of which uses MFC but that doesn't mean using the Speech SDK is limited to MFC usages.

    actually, there's an old app that did this, but would output to the PC speaker (which is ok as well) called TRAN. It was about 40k, sounded fairly rough, but that's fine for my purposes. I could use it royalty free, but it reles on clock speed being between 1 and 100Mhz (it sounded alright on my old 133, but it's just a low buzz on my 550).

    If anyone knows where I may find source to a similar project that I can legally modify and reuse (a little modification of TRAN and it would work, I'm sure), that information would be greatly helpful.

    As for downloading a 60MB SDK, I'm on dialup.

    The size restraint is that the application is going to be distributed mainly via floppies and e-mail (as ordered) and the OCCAISIONAL CD-R. I'd like to keep it under 1MB if possible so that hotmail users (and others with 1MB attatchment limits) still have the option of e-mail delivery.

    I'm choosing not to make it available for direct download for reasons which i'd like to keep to myself until I release the app.

    Examples here:

    Have a look at the speech example which includes an executable under 10KB.

    If your compiler does not have the needed headers, etc then lcc download is under 4MB.
