Windows XP users...
By default, XP has Microsoft SAPI 5.1 installed with one voice (Sam) but your "mileage may vary" ! If the software will not initialize this more than likely means that you need to install Microsoft SAPI 5.1 (speech application programming interface). Get it here >>> this link (6.22 Mb) then double click after download to install.
If you would like to have the Mike and Mary voices - get them HERE (3.7Mb)
Windows 98, ME, 2000 and NT users...
VERY IMPORTANT: Before this software can activate/ operate normally you MUST have Microsoft SAPI 5.1 (speech application programming interface) installed on the system. Since this version is fairly new (introduced in XP), most users will not have installed unless it was setup by another software application install process. You are invited to download then install (double click after download) from this link (6.22 Mb) assuming you have Microsoft "Installer" setup on the system (most users will).
