You need to download and install from here:

To use Sam (or any other TTS voice) in your code, you need to use SAPI
(Speech API) for that. You can download the SAPI SDK from Microsoft's
website.

That is a completely different technology than what Jim is asking for.
See my other reply.

As Remy said you need speech API SDK which includes english speech
engine. That can be downloaded from this link:
www.microsoft.com/speech/download/sdk51/
After that go to bccsdk.sf.net/ and get latest release. In there
you have needed SAPI headers and lib files adapted for borland
compilers. There is also one sample that demonstrates text to speech
with borland compiler inside bccsdk.

SAPI SDK & english engine :
www.microsoft.com/speech/download/sdk51/
SAPI headers and lib files - adapted for borland compilers
bccsdk.sf.net/
My simple SAPI 5.1 TTS object has compiled without borland adapted bccsdk .
Not yet convinced bccsdk use productive .
