    I run WinXP and have the same problem.  Under the Control Panel, speech synthesis works.  Not under TDS though.  I don't consider it a big problem, just a minor annoyance.

    Depending which OS you have, you may not have all the MS agent that is required .
    You will find here what may be missing: http://www.microsoft.com/msagent/downloads.htm#tts

    Hi, depending on your OS you have it all already, or you need some additional actions.
    If you look in the TDS-4 thread here, i explained for instance several settings and options, as well as downloadlinks with WinXP and the speech engines, with MSAgent.

    The speech synthesis is used from the speech engines, also used by MSAgent, functioning on the SAPI 4 engines. TDS uses the engines available on your system; if none is located, run the spchapi.exe a small version of the SAPI 4, which came with TDS and should produce the speech. This could be the solucion for most windows versions.
    If you have XP you have all elements for MSAgent and speech synthesis on your system, but that uses a different technology, SAPI 5. So to use the speech engines for TDS if running the spchapi is not sufficient, you find on the pages mentioned more speech engines and the runtimes for SAPI 4.
    For specific parts in case you have XP you see some tips about temporary disabling speech recognition before the other speech engines function.    

    Because of the speech part in TDS a whole new world opened for me in that area long ago, scripting little things with that.

    Please keep us updated if you succeeded!

    This is a little SS3 script for you especially.
    Copy the part between the [ code ] and [/ code ]
    and save it under the name Congratulations.ss3 in your TDS-3\scripts\examples\helloworld folder.
    Open TDS | SS3 | SS3 Editor , copy/paste this part, save with that name in folder mentioned, Load script and it should run for you.
    For a repeat "reload script" to unload type Resetss3
    Code:
    '//******************************************//
    '//Congratulations.ss3; written by Jooske for//
    '//5zigenCivic to congratulate with the found//
    '// sound and as a little test.                         //
    '//******************************************//
    Call Addline("TDS' Congratulations", "If you hear this line, please type YES, if not please type NO")
    Speak "This is to test if your sound in TDS is working." 
    
    Sub YES
      Call Addline("TDS' Congratulations", "Time to enjoy the speech in TDS it's time it's time..")
      Call Addline("TDS' Congratulations", "Does it work now?")
      Speak "Yes! and enjoy yourself a lot!"
    End Sub
    
    Sub NO
     Speak "hm, that needs further study, please ask more help in the forum!"
    End Sub

    Yes, such things are really easy to make and in the private forum you'll find a lot more everywhere.
    I made the coke machine script there with great pleasure, lots of things included to make it easy as examples for your own scripts.
    You might have downloaded the "innerpeace" script as well and understand which "friendly greetings" inspired to that one!:)
    Of course none of those are any match for the real stuff the smart guys make, as it is a security tool and not just a remote coffee maker! although you can use it even for that.

    On this page MS is describing step by step and with additional images how XP users can configure their registry to have the TTS engines working for all users groups. I suppose this kind of registry editing will be the same for several other functions. they write for win2000 the images look a bit different, but the steps are about the same.
    Good luck for those with XP and sound problesm in TDS.
    going back to the msagent page there, one comes to the download page to grab the sapi 4 runtimes and all other TTS engines with which TDS and all MSAgent
    technology works.
