Re: Remove SAPI4 from Windows 10

Well my way was to install it for real from an old archive, the uninstall it after that. However I'm sure there will be bits left as there always are.
I still have it. I am just trying to remember which programs put it on there. Certainly the old Via Voice IBM program used it, and what was the one that used Mary in space. I seem to recall, was that Dspeach?

Subject: [nvda] Remove SAPI4 from Windows 10

Hello all,

I'm not sure from where it got in my system, though I have a suspicion that it was through a program that I was testing that has TTS support. But now in the list of synthesizers NVDA shows "Microsoft Speech API version 4". Trying to load it results in an error, probably because that is only the main component installed with no voices. I want to remove it, but I don't know how to do it. I looked in "Programs and Features", but there is no entry there for SAPI4, as far as I can see. Is there another way to remove SAPI4 from my Windows 10 machine?

Thanks much in advance!

Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev
