Default Text to Speech

I have an old Microsoft Text-To-Speech API that I use (have been using on and off for 15 years now). It hasn't been updated in years. The female voice has no name (that's how old it is). She works still with my Python scripts. Microsoft doesn't support the SDK anymore, and Windows 10 allows me to run it still. At some point, this voice (and the voice recognition I use also) will be broken in Windows 11.

I think Windows XP or 7 (maybe Vista) had a few more voices to play with, if you bought those voices. Nearly all of my updated Traveller apps have speech in them now. But it's the old voice still. I will say though, she can read pretty much anything I send her way, without me telling her how it should sound. The word "Psion" is a problem for her.

Anyone here dabbling with TTS in Windows 10 using something newer? That has an API of a sort for various languages? I haven't looked into Cortana yet to see what Python stuff there may be for her.
