I downloaded another TTS pack from Microsoft Speech Platform - Runtime Languages (Version 11), but in the speech properties this pack doesn't show up.

To copy the download to your computer for installation at a later time, click Save or Save this program to disk. Important File Download Details. If you want to download sample code, documentation, SAPI, and the U.S. English Speech engines for development purposes, download the Speech SDK 5.1 file (SpeechSDK51.exe). To add other language engines, for free, you will need to the correct Speech Platform, and then you must download the TTS engines in the language(s) that you want. Download the Microsoft Speech Platform. To download and install the Microsoft Speech Platform, follow these steps: Determine which operating system platform that you have. In the search box on the taskbar, type Windows Speech Recognition, and then select Windows Speech Recognition in the list of results.; If you don't see a dialog box that says 'Welcome to Speech Recognition Voice Training,' then in the search box on the taskbar, type Control Panel, and select Control Panel in the list of results.

The image bellow lists all packs installed, which came by default in my Windows 8 installation.

But it is not supported on windows 8, so how can I install more packs?

Just use the tutorial on this page:

!!!WARNING!!!

This involves manual edits to your registry. If you mess it up, don't blame me. Do at your own risk.

Step 1 --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Install the Speech Platform v11

Step 2: --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Get the alternate voices

There are 6 English (all female). I have not listened to the other languages, so I dont know how they sound. GB_Hazel and US_ZiraPro are IMO the better sounding voices.

Step 3: --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extract the registry tokens

Step 4: --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit the voices1/2 files

Step 5: --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Merge the new Registry files into your registry

You should now have access to the new voices in Voice Attack, and in the Windows TTS options menu.

This process may also work with other voice packs.

You might be installing 32-bit voices that are unavailable when using the 64-bit Speech Properties dialog that you normally see on 64-bit Windows.

Try using the 32-bit dialog by invoking %windir%sysWOW64speechSpeechUXSAPI.cpl.
