Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Open Notepad
Open up Notepad on your windows xp, windows 7, or windows 8 computer.
Step 2: The Code
Type this into Notepad:
Dim text, sapi
text=inputbox("enter text to be spoken")
Now what does this mean?
-When you execute this script it first creates a input box which is recognized as "text".
-Then the script sets up the sapi so we can now use it (this what will speak)
-Lastly it takes what was typed into input box "text" and sends it to the sapi to be spoken.
Step 3: Save Your File
Now you need to save your file.
First Click file>save as...
Next choose any file name but be sure to put .vbs afterwards. Ex. Filename.vbs
Then be sure to click next to Save as type: and then in the drop down menu click All Files
Step 4: Execute Your File
The last step is to locate where you saved your file and double click it.
In the input field enter something and click ok.
Congratulations! You just made your computer talk!
