Uses Microsoft's Speech API to provide text to speech options for outputting speech in EverQuest.


Syntax Description
/tts loglevel | reload | say | sayxml | speed | voice | volume [argument] Primarily the command /tts say is used to speak text. Other commands are primarily for settings, which is best controlled via the settings menu.


Settings are easily configured graphically with the following command: /mqsettings plugins/TextToSpeech

MQTextToSpeech.ini stores the persistent settings (Volume/Speed/Voice). The voice is separate between 32 bit and 64 bit since they maybe be different (even on the same system).

Speed Modifier=0
Voice=Microsoft David
Voice_32bit=Microsoft Zira

Using XML

TextToSpeech supports the SAPI XML TTS API when using the SayXML parameter. To find more about how to use this to adjust pitch, rate, and speed within a single line you can review the api here:

For example, the empty box in settings can be recreated using this command:

/say sayxml You <pitch middle="10">really should enter</pitch> something to say if you want to test. This box also supports <spell>XML</spell>
