As of most tutorial written in this website, this tutorial will also not need any software. After reading this tutorial you will able to make your Windows 7 PC talk and greet you on every start up in the way you like.
 
What we are going to do?
 
We will make a VB script and place it in Windows 7 Start up folder. There after, every time you log in, a voice will greet you after the start up sound (if enabled).
 
Step 1
 
Open Notepad. Copy paste the code written below:
 

 

Now, change my name to yours inside the code. In-fact, you can change and place any sentence within the quotation mark in the code. I have tested, it works fine upto 5 words. You can change the spelling, add space, punctuation etc to make it more realistic.

For example, I want to hear my name as “Oh-bhi-shake” ; so I will write there “Oh bhi shake”.

Here is the screenshot:

 

 

Now, Save it as “Greetings.vbs” (without quotes) and as I always say, change the file from text to “all files“. Save it to some location, you can remember; say Desktop. Here is screenshot of this step:

 

 

Step 2

 

Now, we have to place it inside the Windows Startup folder. Click the Start-Button, choose “All Programs” and you will find it as a folder named Startup. Right Click it and choose Open or Explore. (Look the address bar in the screenshot below):

Copy the VBS file you have created and paste there. You must be logged on as Admin. A security prompt will come, just accept it:

 

Step 3

 

Just restart the computer and you will hear the voice!
To disable it, just delete the file.
Now, we will go to further details.

 

Type of voices: In Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista, the default female voice is Anna. In Windows XP and 2000 its Sam.

 

There is way to change the settings of this default voice in Windows 7 and Vista too.
Click the Start Button, type “narrator” without quotes:

 

Narrator will open and begin to speak:

Just click the “Voice settings” and you will get this window:

There are third party voices available for installation, the world’s quality best is if of Ket, but not available outside bulk purchase. Quality wise, Anna is next to it.
