    Hi there,
    Thanks for the link Pilli.
    Yes, the voices are in the larger SpeechSDK (the around 40MB file)
    I might ever have seen the voices pack separate, but i'm not 100% sure if that was for the SAPI4 or the 5 or even a newer kind.
    I collected voices from everywhere and have some 57, but i keep to one nice voice which comes close to Sam, as i'm used to that.
    The msagents come with their own voices if you use them, as you'll notice.
    If you go to that msagent page and the tryout agent page and especially the samples there you will hear them and can try out the very nice interactive voice commanded Peedy Pizza Ordering system.
    With some tricks you can even play TDS scripts with the voiceless Clippit and make him speak and sing, (XP = ex-paperclip you know) --- anyway have fun with it!
