I'm pretty sure that WinFx marks the first time that Speech APIs have been included along with everything else, and can therefore be used without fear by any WPF application. The assembly that must be referenced is System.Speech.dll, and the namespace is System.Speech. The TrySpeech.csx (and rename to .cs) program (with TrySpeech.csproj project file) demonstrates some rudimentary speech synthesis.
