Apart from the supplied text-to-voice engine, you can use any Microsoft-SAPI5-compatible text-to-speech engine with Voice Editing. For example, the Windows XP operating system comes with a default English language text-to-speech engine called "Microsoft Sam." When using Voice Editing with Windows XP, you can use this engine. Also with Office XP/Office 2003, if the bundled text-to-speech engine equipped as standard is installed, the LH Kenji and LH Naoko text-to-voice functions become available. These functions can also be used with Voice Editing.
