Adjusting Premium Voices

Open the Settings dialog to configure your new Premium Voice Extensions:

1. Choose a premium voice: Microsoft Server HuiHui, Microsoft Server HanHan or Microsoft HunYee. The first two are Mandarin Chinese voices; the HunYee is a Cantonese Chinese voice
2. Adjust the voice rate by sliding it left (slower) or right (faster). With rate control, you can focus on listening to the nuances of each tone when you are learning Chinese; speed up the rate to practice conversational Chinese.
