    Text-to-speech in C++

    I've searched the forums and found a couple topics.. but none of them contained answers... one contained borken links to msdn, and i tried to navigate to it manually in msdn but found nothing...

    What is the simplest way to do text-to-speech in a simple win32 app... this only needs to work for XP boxes...

    Thanks

    The simplest? Record someone saying every word in the English language, and then play the appropriate sound snippet for each word encountered.

    Yes, it's far from ideal, not smart, and a massive job. But it sounds pretty simple to me
