I'm a Delphi 6 and MS-Agent newby.
Trying to get my PC to speak with a.m. tools.
I managed to activate "Merlin" by importing agent as Active X control and I can make him write text in the text baloon. But he remains silent, even though I activate the voice output. Lips are not moving.
code segment used to output speech:
with Agent.Characters.Item['Merlin'] do
Speak('This is map=' + chr(34) + 'Spoken text'
+ chr(34) + '=' + chr(34) + 'Balloon text' + chr(34) + '.','');
P.S. Running truespeech in parallel I get the very same Merlin speaking aloud. => Hardware and text2speech engine are okay!
