When you start your Windows PC, it plays startup sound (Windows 10 doesn’t play startup sound by default). Well, besides Windows startup sound, you can also setup your Windows PC to speak a welcome message on user login. Yes, just like Jarvis in Iron Man movies. It means, every time you login to your Windows PC, it will greet you with a voice message like, “Welcome back, Dear”.
Well, that’s not very tough either. We can easily do this by using a simple visual basic (vbs) script. This script turns text into speech and it’s very simple and easy to use. So, you won’t require any coding knowledge to set it up. Just few lines of code and you are done. Best part is that it works on all Windows versions be it Windows 7, 8/8.1, 10 or Windows 11.
