How can Audible Alarms with 'Text to Speech' functionality be configured in Vijeo Citect 2015.

For enabling the 'Text To Speech' function for alarms, do the below settings in Vijeo Citect Project:
- Copy and paste the 'AlarmServerStartup.ci' and 'Speech.ci' cicode files into the Project 
- Copy and paste 'CitectTextToSpeech.zip' and 'SE.Citect.TextToSpeech.dll' into the Project directory.

Following 'ini' Parameters need to be set:
[ALARM]  
EventQue=1  
EventFmt={Name,79}{STATE,16}{TYPE,16}  
----------------------  
[Alarm.Cluster1.AlarmServer1]  
StartupCode=AlarmServerStartup()  
----------------------  
This enables the “alarm event queue” and calls the function on startup (on the alarm server) that takes events from the queue and “speaks” them.  
Remember that this feature is only available from Vijeo Citect 2015 onwards. Refer the required files attached which are also available in the 'Example' Project's Directory.
