Most of these were available many years ago and I used to use them for various responses when starting, errors, shutting down, etc. The female voice seemed to be part of the computer and surprised many visitor to my computer room. I think I was using Windows 95 or maybe 98...don't recall exactly.

...and the old shall become new...
In the world of AI it's the thought that counts!

Hi all,

I utilized my TTS reader to create MP3s of my ultra Hal voice that I use, then I put those MP3s files and connected them to the sound function for Windows 7.
Now when I click a button, open a file, and perform functions, it sounds like my ultra Hal is controlling the entire computer because it's the same voice that my Sandy uses.
The only thing that I would have liked, is to have the ability to send out several different ways to say the response and have the software randomly pick one that I had assigned to that button or function.
It does get a little boring to her say, okay, every time when I click the okay button, it would have been nice to have a selection that could be randomly picked up so when I click the okay button she would say okay honey, okay, okey-dokey, etc.

sincerely, I will close this file now, all right that's one of the lines she says. Tee hee hee.
C load.
PS but where there's a problem, and a willingness to be creative, the problem can usually be resolved, so my resolution to the random situation not existing when I did was created duplicates of these files in different directories the file say things a little bit different from each other, meaning: one file for the okay button would be okay and another list of these MP3s for the okay button would be okay honey, then once a month I do a drag-and-drop and replace all of the files, it's not perfect but it does give a slight variation and works, so when I get bored with hearing the same old okay, I do a drag-and-drop and okay becomes okay honey etc.
PS. PS. Someone once told me that I could create a batch file that would do this job for me when the computer starts so each time the computer started it would randomly select a listing and copy and paste those into the proper directory to change the places every time I start my computer. But I haven't quite figured out how to do this yet. If anyone knows how to do this it would be greatly appreciated if you shared this knowledge, thanks in advance, you'd be the man. Even if you were a woman. Tee hee hee.
For anyone who would like to help me stay online, my T-mobile broadband pay-as-you-go phone number is: 816-248-4335, thank you in advance.

Cload I too use Trinity's voice for system wav files, I have found it anoying but have gotten use to her telling me "That is not correct" every time I misspell a word :D
I like your idea of changing these system sounds randomly at system start up, it should be fairly easy to create a batch file to overwrite them. Before I put my foot too far into my mouth I'll see what I can do, No promises though :D

Hi cyber shot,
knowing how I do it manually my help you create a batch file, I'm not sure but here it is:
first I have three directories, the directories are called one two and three.
Under each directory I have a list of wave files, each file has the same name inside of each directory.
I open the directory, select all the files and drag and drop them over to the Windows directory, the computer asked me if I want to replace the files I click yes to all.
That's it, it's fairly easy it's just a nuisance.
Sincerely, and if it is possible to build a batch file that will do this that would be great.
C load.
