Sapi fix

January 30, 2012

A small utility to remove sapi 5.1 voices under Vista and 7.

For some reason only MS knows, the sapi 5.1 voices (namely Mike and Mary) in the Speech API runtime do not work by default. If a program happens to install the runtime, those voices could result in crashing the host application trying to initialise them. As a quick solution, this small utility attempts to remove the voices.

Please note: the sapi 5.1 runtime won’t be removed, only the voice tokens from the registry. To remove the runtime, follow the standard program removal procedure.


Works under vista and 7.
