in thread Text to Speech Win32::OLE Error

You're using Windows XP, which has SAPI5 installed by default. However, the class you're trying to load is SAPI4. Even if you'd install the SAPI4 runtime, you still won't be able to use the voices you mentioned, since SAPI5 voices can't be used in SAPI4.
I recommend you use Win32::SAPI5. It does the hard work for you.

Kind regards,
