Voices and Languages Other than US English

If you are using text-to-speech languages other than US English and thus do not have any US English TTS licenses or voices installed, you must edit your client_property.conf file and change the SYNTHESIS_LANGUAGE parameter to a language you do have installed (it defaults to US English).

For instance, if you only have UK English licenses, then you would change the line to read:


This particularly affects MRCP users, since a new MRCP request does not specify which language to use when an MRCP session is opened (it is specified after the session is established).

The most common symptom of not having a valid language set for SYNTHESIS_LANGUAGE is the following error: -55 Either no TTS servers active or none have the required capabilities.
