[XPPro] Better M$ Sam voice.

I know this file is meant to be installed with the main installation .cabs, but is there a folder the file Sp5TTIntXP.msm can be dropped in or an executable that inserts it into the necessary archive?

I'm trying to switch the crappy MSSam voice with Mary for my Ventrillo event TTS binds.

Would there be a better forum to ask in mods?

I like Microsoft Sam! I can't stand the crappy, tinny, high pitched female Mary voice. I don't understand why automated systems when you call a business almost always use a female voice. Those grate on my nerves. I far prefer a deep, low pitched male voice. Besides, as one ages, the first hearing problems are in the frequency range of most female voices. Male voices should be the norm for things like this not female (unless they have smoker's voices).

Just so's I understand: you're saying that women are inherently irritating?

Mele20 said "voice". It is only when the voice is active that the inherent irritance you mention becomes an issue.

I have hardly heard the Female voice myself.

The change from generic masculine to generic feminine was due to the equal rights movements. Take for example my Dungeons & Dragons books. Prior to 1980 most of the books referred to the subject as he, him, or his. After 1980 they started to refer to the subject as she, her, or her's. Here recently they've more frequently used fictitious characters that are assigned a gender and dictate accordingly.

The mans voice seems to have a lot of bad grammar like "John has joined the serber". Whats a "Serber"?

From what I've heard of the feminine voice it's smoother, more well pronounced and easier to understand.
