    Hello, it seems that - at least for Italian - it is not so easy to install and enable an Italian-speaking voice for this purpose.

    It seems that no official documentation from Microsoft does exist and the only existing instructions are provided by bloggers - it is a sort of hack.

    Moreover, this hack is not working with 64-bit versions of Firefox. I've tested all this on 64-bit Windows 7.

    Could it be possible to know if it is the same for other versions of Windows?

    Hi Underpass,

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'll check with someone from the Firefox team and see what they advise for this article.

    More updates soon. Joni
