Add More Voices in Alert Sound Maker

Alert Sound Maker uses Microsoft’s text-to-speech technology.
This article will instruct you how to add new languages & voices from Microsoft’s servers.

Windows 7

In Windows 7, it is almost impossible to add more voices.

On most computers, the default voice (Microsoft Anna – English) is the only choice in the list.
Few computers provide more than one pre-installed voices.

In 99% of cases (regardless of whether a computer has one or multiple pre-installed voices), adding a new voice or language in Windows 7 does NOT end up with success.

Windows 8/10

In Windows 8 or Windows 10, you can easily install new languages & voices.

Step 1 – Make sure Windows Update is enabled

Without Windows Update enabled, you cannot download any language packages.

  • Windows 8: Please follow this instruction to navigate to Windows Update settings, then make sure you have “Install updates automatically (recommended)” selected.
  • Windows 10: By design, Windows Update cannot be switched off, so you don’t have to do anything. However, if you are using a third-party application to switch off Windows Update, please temporarily turn it on.

Step 2 – Find & download a language package

Almost all popular languages are supported: English, Chinese, Spanish, Russian, French, Italian, German, Japanese, Arabic… This means you will be able to have alerts spoken in your native language.

Please follow any of the following instructions to install a language package you want (each language package usually consists of several voices).

■ Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
