I am new to Captivate. I need to develop training using text-to-speech in English and in French (Canadian). There is only Chloe's voice in French. I've added the Microsoft Francais (Canada) Language pack in my settings. But even though I have rebooted the computer and restarted Captivate, I don't have access to Microsoft Claude and Caroline's voices in Captivate. What else fo I need to do to be able to view them in the droplist of voices available together with the 7 default Captivate voice and microsoft Zira^
Unfortunately the Microsoft Francais (Canada) Language Pack doesn't include voices that can be used in Adobe Captivate. Even if you install Claude and Caroline you will only be able to use these voices with Microsoft Narrator (screen reader). The only French voice that is compatible with Adobe Captivate for text-to-speech is Microsoft Hortense (France). Unfortunately, the nuances of French Canadian will be lost with this voice.
Thank you. Any solutions for French Canadian voices, even through third party?
Thank you but I also need a male voice?
Sorry, that's the only one that I know of.
"The best solution is an actual French Canadian speaker..."
I agree with Paul - it is a little more work to record the narration yourself but personally, I find text to speech to be a real turn off - especially when it is forced on the listener.
