View Full Version : Make Windows 7 Welcome You With A Custom Voice Message

10-14-2010, 09:20 PM
It’s a well-known fact that Windows 7 comes with a set of sound scheme packages and one can easily change the default sound scheme with a custom one. We also know that one can easily enable or disable the default startup sound.

Now, if you would like to make your PC welcome you with a simple voice message, we have a simple way to do that. Of course, you can go for the harder way of changing the default startup sound. But users who would like to make it simple can follow the steps given below.

1. First copy the following code in a notepad and then save the file with any name but the the file should be in .vbs extension. Of course, you can the customize the message with your own words. In this example, you can replace the words “Hello IntoWindows! Welcome back to your computer. Have a nice day” with a custom message.

Dim speaks, speech
speaks="Hello IntoWindows! Welcome back to your computer. Have a nice day"
Set speech=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
speech.Speak speaks



2. Now move the previously saved .vbs file to the Startup folder present in your Windows 7 drive:

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup


3. You are done! Simply reboot your folder to hear the cool welcome message just after the logon sound.

Thanks to Ricky and Peopleware for this info.
