    It doesn't come as standard.

    Download it from the Market.

    TTS is nothing to do with Voice Search.

    I think this is because it is now part of the latest version of Android (1.6 upwards) so they have removed it from the market. You may be able to get the .apk file from someone here, otherwise wait for the next ROM update which will probably be only a matter of a few weeks or less (fingers crossed!)

    Can some one tell me how to load it to my phone? Use HTC Snyc after you load from internet? Thanks. I am looking for voice search for a long time, this could be the answer...

    Hi

    copy the file to the root of your SDcard. goto settings > applications and allow unknown sources.

    then browse the SD Card - I used Astro - and just click the file - the installer will then fire up :)

    nice and easy
