The Office Assistant package does not have any code for that purpose. You have to do it all by yourself.

OK Thanks.

I think I will have to use original MS Agent.

@Kambiz,

Just to update you on this.

Today while searching for alternative TTS Engines for my upcoming project I found this gem of a TTS Engine which is a freeware and open source implementation and is interesting. Please check it and see if you feel like adding it to Office Assistant VCL. anyway check it out please. (http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/mbrola/mbrtts.html)

I am attaching a small code sample which shows how to use the TTS Engine.

HTH

Actually I have already written a complete set of Delphi components for TTS and ASR (SAPI 4 and 5), and after several years I didn't decide to distribute them yet. :?

Anyway I don't see any clue to add TTS support to Office Assistant package. As you could find there are some free TTS components that you can use with the assistant. You just need to define a function that calls Assistant.Speek and TTS.Speak together.
