Installing Text To Speech voices in Captivate 5 for Mac

We’ve had several queries on our Forums on installing the new and text-to-speech voices. Smitha, our documentation lead, has written a detailed blog post on the steps to be followed for downloading and installing the text to speech voices in Captivate (both NeoSpeech and Loquendo voices are covered). An excerpt is below, but I’m sure even the Windows users will find the full article useful.

>>Excerpt from Smitha’s blog>>>

Troubleshooting tips
If you do not find the voices listed in the Speech Agent drop-down menu, check if the following folders exist on your system:

      • NeoSpeech: VT folder in /Applications/Adobe Captivate 5
      • Loquendo: LoquendoTTS folder. To see this folder, Control-click the Adobe Captivate app in the Adobe Captivate 5 folder, click Show Package Contents, and then expand the Contents node.

If these folders exist, but the voices are not showing up in the Speech Management dialog box, double-click the installer (CpExtrasCLI) again.
If these folders are not created on your system, repeat the entire installation procedure (right from downloading the text-to-speech converters from the web or inserting the installation DVD through double-clicking the installer: CpExtrasCLI).
