AIDA64 is great. Its interface is very useful to quickly know information about software and hardware.

I want to suggest the addition of software pages about speech engines, including SAPI 4/5 related to ASR and TTS. For example: what standards (SAPI 4 and SAPI 5) are supported on the system, what modules for recognition and TTS are installed, data of speech engines such as CLSID etc.

Thanks!

We'll check if it's possible to gather such data from Windows. Do you know of any software that can display such information?

Thanks,

Fiery

Some engines have specific programs that can display this information (even related to engines from other manufacturers). For example, the Windows version of the Infovox from Acapela Group can display SAPI versions installed on the system, and the diagnostic program that comes with Loquendo TTS SDK includes information about all engines in the generated report.

Fortunately this information can be obtained from the Windows Registry (there is no interface to acomplish this task), under the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Speech

Inside Voices are data of installed voices of any manufacturer, including vendor, language, age, name, data folder, CLSID etc. The CLSID is used internally by programs that use SAPI to reference the voices.

Thanks!

Thank you. We've started working on adding SAPI support. I'll drop a message into this topic once a new AIDA64 beta with SAPI details is available for download.

We've implemented the new Multimedia / SAPI page in the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

http://www.aida64.com/downloads/aida64extremebuild1917z8kpq0xdhvzip

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.

Let me know how it works.

Thanks,

Fiery

This work fine! Thanks!

Only one suggestion, there may be a colum (in case of SAPI 5 because it's obvious for SAPI 4) that could display, for each voice/engine, if is x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit).

Finally, some fields appear in English. When will be included into languages modules for translating?

We've added the DLL machine type tag to the end of the DLL file lines on the SAPI page. Localization for the new AIDA64 features will be implemented later on, sometime in May.

Make sure to upgrade to the latest beta version of AIDA64 Extreme Edition available at:

After upgrading to this new version, make sure to restart Windows to finalize the upgrade.
