    TTS stands for Text to speech, and SAPI stands for Speech Application Programming Interface. Basically, it's trying to say that your Speech feature in the control panel isn't installed correctly. That means it won't open no matter what and it'll give you that error each time unless you reinstall it.

    Here's a download link to install SAPI version 5.1. Perhaps reinstalling it might get it to work.

    Thank you I got the file but when I went to install it I got this message "C:/documents and setting /owner/my documents/downloads/speechsdk51.exe is not a valid win32 application. I don't know what i'm doing wrong.
