PowerShell: Text to Speech

PowerShell is able to utilize the ‘Text to Speech’ function in the Windows operating system. You can check the voice settings in ‘Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Speech Recognition’


$results = Get-Content C:\results.txt

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Speech
$synthesizer = New-Object -TypeName System.Speech.Synthesis.SpeechSynthesizer

# This line converts the text to speech

# This line lists the installed voice information
$synthesizer.GetInstalledVoices() | ForEach-Object { $_.VoiceInfo }
