Quickstart: Synthesize speech in C++ for Windows

This sample demonstrates how to synthesize speech with C++ using the Speech SDK for Windows. See the accompanying article on the SDK documentation page which describes how to build this sample from scratch in Visual Studio 2017.

Prerequisites

  • A subscription key for the Speech service. See Try the speech service for free.
  • A Windows PC with a working speaker or headset.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2017, Community Edition or higher.
  • The Desktop development with C++ workload in Visual Studio and the NuGet package manager component in Visual Studio. You can enable both in Tools > Get Tools and Features, under the Workloads and Individual components tabs, respectively.

Build the sample

  • By building this sample you will download the Microsoft Cognitive Services Speech SDK. By downloading you acknowledge its license, see Speech SDK license agreement.
  • Download the sample code to your development PC.
  • Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and select File > Open > Project/Solution.
  • Navigate to the folder containing this sample, and select the solution file contained within it.
  • Edit the helloworld.cpp source:
    • Replace the string YourSubscriptionKey with your own subscription key.
    • Replace the string YourServiceRegion with the service region of your subscription. For example, replace with westus if you are using the 30-day free trial subscription.
  • Set the active solution configuration and platform to the desired values under Build > Configuration Manager:
    • On a 64-bit Windows installation, choose x64 as active solution platform.
    • On a 32-bit Windows installation, choose x86 as active solution platform.
  • Press Ctrl+Shift+B, or select Build > Build Solution.

Note If you are seeing red squigglies from IntelliSense for Speech SDK APIs, right-click into your editor window and select Rescan > Rescan Solution to resolve.

Run the sample

To debug the app and then run it, press F5 or use Debug > Start Debugging. To run the app without debugging, press Ctrl+F5 or use Debug > Start Without Debugging.
