Powershell Speaks

I found this at http://powershell.com/cs/blogs/tips/archive/2012/02/20/make-powershell-speak.aspx. I haven't seen it on here. This could get pretty interesting. 

I've added this to the end of a few scripts that I have. Users think their computers are magical.

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Speech
$synthesizer = New-Object -TypeName System.Speech.Synthesis.SpeechSynthesizer
$synthesizer.Speak('Installation Complete. Please reboot at your earliest convenience!')


  • That is too cool... looks like I'll have to start using PowerShell just for fun if nothing else.

  • On a related note, I wrote an article a long time ago about how to do the same with VBScript: http://mcpmag.com/articles/2007/09/04/talking-scripts.aspx - bkelly 11 years ago
