MessageI have all of Jim Kitchen's text-to-speech games and I like them very 
much. The only thing I don't like is the sapi voices. They are horrible! That 
Sam sounds like he's gonna croak any second! I used to have other 
sapi-compatible voices but somehow they got uninstalled. My roommate doesn't 
like the Spanker game, but I showed it to my former life skills tutor and she 
died laughing!

  He has both types of games.  If you get the kid with PC life you can do most 
of the Windows games.  I have his life, monopoly and casino packages currently 
installed and they all work under XP.  I had others, but some of them I did not 
do well with like the concentration.  I think I also have hangman and Yahtzi on 
this machine.  

  I have not had time to play games since I discovered Blind Cool Tech and 
other pods.

  Hi all,

  I thought Jim Kitchen's games were designed for old DOS machines. Any recent 
version of Windows XP probably wouldn't run them; just because there's a 
command prompt doesn't mean it's a DOS box. I suspect that DOS is gone forever; 
Windows XP is not designed to run with a DOS code base as most previous Windows 
were. microsoft deleted most traces of DOS deliberately. In fact, you cannot 
boot XP in DOS mode unless you do some procedures to make it happen, none of 
which I know since I have no need for them.
