use 32 bit voices in 64 bit windows

UPDATE: You can select the 32bit voices for system use, you need to use the 32 bit version of the control panel applet. Try this in the search box.


click the icon you now have the 32 bit control to speak to windows

You should see your 32bit voices provided they are SAPI5. This works with ATT Natural voices. This would solve your 32bit apps issues

In 64-bit versions of Windows, if Ultra Hal Assistant 6.2 is installed alongside with Ultra Hal Text-to-Speech Reader with AT&T Voices, everything should work fine in both programs.

If only Ultra Hal Text-to-Speech Reader is installed with AT&T Voices but Ultra Hal Assistant is not present then the AT&T voices will not be visible to the TTS Reader due to how Windows seperates 32-bit and 64-bit voices. If this is the case you can either install Ultra Hal Assistant 6.2 and the problem will be fixed, or install this 64-bit compatibility update which installs some library files that are included in Hal 6.2 that happen to fix the issue with the TTS Reader in 64-bit Windows:
