My company just bought the upgrade from Captivate 5.5 to Captivate 6. After installing Captivate 6 as well as the additional speech package there is no German voice ("Stefan") available anymore in the "Speech Agent" droplist ("Speech Management" dialog)!?
This function is crucial for us since all our software demos are published in German and English.
Is there another speech package I have to install or what can I do?
Did you find a German voice for Captivate 6?
I searched the web and came across the below pages.
I found that Captivate 6 does not support a Loquendo anymore, but didn't find an alternative yet. Did you?
No, I didn't find a German voice for Captivate 6. I have talked to several members of the Adobe support staff (in Germany and the US) and the answer was always the same:
"Regarding the question, german voices are not available with Cp 6. You will not be able to use Cp 5.5 voices with 6. You can however get any third party voices but we havent tested them at Adobe and we might not be able to support them."
That does not sound very encouraging, does it? After wasting several additional hours on browsing support forums I gave up.
I've decided to record my own voice (which is still available in German).
Ok, I did some more research for Germen voices too and in the end I found that only http://www.cereproc.com could provide voices that work with Adobe Captrivate 6.
So, the only provider left for me is http://www.cereproc.com. On their website you can quicly find, purchase and download a voice. All you need to do then is install the voice, enter the license and (re-)start Captivate.
Hope this helps
