SpeechSynthesizer.SelectVoiceByHints Method (VoiceGender)
Selects a voice with a specific gender.
Assembly: System.Speech (in System.Speech.dll)
Use the GetInstalledVoices method and VoiceInfo class to obtain the names of installed text-to-speech (TTS) voices that you can select. The SpeechSynthesizer object selects the first installed voice whose Gender property matches the gender parameter.
When an application calls GetInstalledVoices, the method verifies that each of the voices it finds in the registry meets certain minimum criteria. For any voice that fails verification, GetInstalledVoices sets its Enabled property to False. An application cannot select a voice whose Enabled property is False. Typically, applications will not set a voice’s Enabled property.
To select a voice based on other characteristics, see the other SelectVoiceByHints methods.
To select a voice by name, use the SelectVoice method.
