@Ed M Thanks for the question. To run Speech Studio, you’ll need an Azure account with a Speech or Cognitive Services resource.
Here is the document that you can try text to speech in Speech Studio without signing up or writing any code.

I work for a non-profit. We retrain those with physical disabilities how to use MS Office Suite to allow them to get back into the work force at a relatively sedentary job. We get the occasional students who cannot type because of injuries to their hands. We have tried Windows Speech Recognition software built into Windows 10 and 11, but so far, our student and teacher frustration with it outweighs our successes. I have tried the Speech Studio in Azure, and it is 10 times better than Speech Recognition. Is there any way for our students to be able to access just the Speech Studio without having to create and sign into an account. The one-minute time limit is not a problem, they can dictate, copy and paste, and then repeat as necessary. We have looked into other speech to text software, but the cost is terribly prohibitive for us as a small non-profit.
