Hi all,

I am currently creating a QuickCapture project in Thai language and after saving the project, I open it in the recently released Windows app. However, the Text-to-Speech functionality does not work for Thai Buttons. It works fine for English. Is there a way to change the TTS setting in the Windows App.

Note:

  • The iOS and Android apps support TTS for other languages (Thai, Japanese, Chinese etc...) by setting the device's TTS service to the respective language required (Google/Apple TTS)
  • I have attempted changing Windows 10' TTS service to Thai but QuickCapture still won't read Thai buttons. (Only English is read).(Thai is Microsoft Pattara)

Hi Kannin

Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system comes with a set of voices for each language installed on the device. Only some of the installed voices become available system-wide so that third-party software such as QuickCapture may make use of them as well. The majority of voices are restricted to internal use, e.g. for Cortana or other areas.

Please see the following link for steps on making voices for languages such as Thai, available to QuickCapture:

Hi. Please open an Esri Technical Support case so we can look at this in more detail.  The QuickCapture mobile app leverages the underlying operating system text to speech capabilities. We will need to understand, with details about your operating system, what is going on.
