The other day I stumbled upon a nice PowerShell command to use the speech API found on modern Windows Operating Systems. With this script PowerShell can talk to you! Great for situations where you want to hear about the progress of your script. Or maybe to tell you there’s an alert instead of showing the alert. Here’s the script:


$a = New-Object -COM SAPI.SpVoice
$a.speak("I'm completely operational, and all my circuits are functioning perfectly.")
