As a general rule, it's good practice to explicitly declare variables. In your code below, for instance, the variable speech is declared without a data type, which means that it is a variant. In most cases, this works, but, in some cases, maybe not, or at least, not so efficiently.

Next, try explicit declaration and instantiation of the speech objects.


Dim ObjTextToSpeech as SAPI.spVoice
Set ObjTextToSpeech = new SAPI.spVoice
' when done, 
set ObjTextToSpeech =nothing
Ran a quick test using MS' speech library.

Created a form with a textbox, two command buttons, a short picturebox anchored to the bottom containing a label. The controls were names (respectively) txtText, cmdTalk, cmdSing, picStat, and lblStat.

Ref the attached image, as well as the code below.
Option Explicit

Dim sSpeech As String
Dim oSpeech As SpeechLib.SpVoice

Private Sub cmdSing_Click()
   Const sLyric As String = "~N~ bottles of beer on the wall! ~N~ bottles of beer!  Take 1 down, pass it around, ~N-1~ bottles of Beer on the wall..."
   Dim N As Integer
   For N = 99 To 1 Step -1
      sSpeech = Replace(sLyric, "~N~", CStr(N))
      If N = 1 Then
         sSpeech = Replace(sSpeech, "~N-1~", "NO") & " And, we're all done!"
         sSpeech = Replace(sSpeech, "~N-1~", CStr(N - 1))
      End If
      Me.lblStat.Caption = CStr(N - 1) & " Bottles: " & CStr(oSpeech.Speak(sSpeech))
   Next N
   Set oSpeech = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub cmdTalk_Click()
   sSpeech = Me.txtText.Text

   Me.lblStat.Caption = CStr(oSpeech.Speak(sSpeech))
   Set oSpeech = Nothing
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
   ' instantiate the voice
   Set oSpeech = New SpeechLib.SpVoice
End Sub
