Runtime 70 error when saving .wav file
« on: June 10, 2009, 01:53:21 pm »
Hello. I'm using version 1.0 of Hal Reader and am experiencing an issue I can't fix: Whenever I select a non-windows voice and attempt to save the .wav file of a text, after I click the Save button it says "Wav file created" but once I answer that I am told saving failed with the error "Run-time error '70': Permission denied". The wav file is not created.

This happens with all voices except LH Michael, LH Michelle, Microsoft Mary, Microsoft Mike and Microsoft Sam. If I use these saving works ok, but if I use any of the other voices I get this error. Is there any way to save .wav files with the non-Windows TTS voices? I'm using Windows XP Media Center SP3. Thanks.

Also wanted to say this is a lovely freeware program and is very good and helpful, congratulations to the authors for their great work :)

I feel pretty sure that the blame belongs to Microsoft. There may be another answer but MS may have designed their software that way.

It could be that. All voices playback correctly however, this only occurs when saving the .wav file which is what I find most odd since it means all voices can be accessed.

Anyway, is there no solution to this? The program is designed to run on Windows XP too so maybe there's something that can be done...

It sounds like you found and are using an outdated version of the Text-to-Speech Reader.

The latest version I am aware of is the UltraHal Text-To-Speech Reader Copyright 2007. It does not display any version when Help or About is selected.

There is a section to Convert Text into Wav audio file.

It does not work on my system and I am using XP MCE SP-3. Hal 6.2 works fine as do the majority of various plug-ins.

The Text to Speech reader otherwise performs well except for the snafu listed above.

If you drop Robert Medeksza an email (go to Members > find name...)
perhaps he could shed some light. * He's Hal's creator!

I do have a full administrator account so this shouldn't be a problem, never had any issues with my account not having rights on files before. And which is the latest version of the Reader? I'm using the one from this page currently.

MirceaKitsune,

Sorry about the confusion, you ARE using the correct version.

I tried that feature again and received a "Class Factory cannot supply the requested class" error.

Does this feature work fine for everyone else?

Use a line of text instead of several sentences or paragraphs as the resultant file is fairly large after the conversion.

I'm still experiencing this problem and found no way to get it working. Has no one found any fix to it, or know any possible solution that could be tried? Or if any of the devs are reading this maybe they could try to post a new version of the reader if they can look into what's causing the issue, that would be very appreciated.

 I just downloaded and installed UltraHal. I get the  same error.  Win XP, 1 gig of ram. Plenty of disk space...  I'm a programmer.
I get similar errors when doing the same  task using other free tts engines.
The problem is not the software.  If that was the issue, the programmer would have been free to resolve & comment on this, but he is not.
The problem is that the user is seen as a possible cog in the machinery of the system, and his abilities are being covertly, systematically, limited. 
There are 2 solutions:
1 Request a freedom of information lookup on yourself, and request that the CIA remove you from their terrorist list.  May as well request that the gangstalkers start being nice to you -- oops, now  I'll be punished.  I said too much.  You're not supposed to know that you're also being gangstalked & covertly tortured.

2 Get a copy of textaloud MP3 & find a keygen.  I don't recommend this cause it's wrong.  There's a free 30-day trial bleh.

Run Ultra Hal TTS Reader as administrator and it should work fine.

I'm having the same problem.  Using Windows Vista. Setting to run as administrator didn't help  None of the voices will save to .wav file. Thank you.

hi Robinrobin,

Not to be a wiseguy, but did you notice it took Robert three years to answer the question and that was two years ago!

Sincerely, no offense intended, just an observation.
C load.

Yes, I saw that, but this bumps it to the top so I thought continuing the conversation might be helpful.  I came across another program on the web called Speakonia which looks identical to Hal text to speech with the exception that convert txt to wav works on it.  Are they made by the same company?

Can you provide a link to where you found the software?

Not sure if it's Zabaware or not but a Google search brings up the link.

This is the developer's page stating the end of support for the product. They also provide
Registration Key info as well as a link for download from the C-Net site.

The program uses the older L&H TTS voices, some of which are useful for certain projects.
