RE: Slightly OT - JAWS voices

RealSpeak won't work, but SAPI 5 will; it even works with Acrobat
Reader.

Subject: Slightly OT - JAWS voices

Hi everyone,

I have a question which is kind of JAWS related but not completely. If
you 
would like to respond privately, please feel free to do so. My e-mail is

texaspawprints@xxxxxxxxx

Anyway, my question is this. I know my JAWS 11 CD has the various voices
on 
it. Is there a way to just get one or all of the voices downloaded to a 
computer for use with w'indows applications without loading JAWS on the 
computer?  My daughter is quite the little novelist and also slightly 
dyslexic. She uses a program to read her stories aloud so she can see
how 
they sound. The only voice she has on her computer is Microsoft Sam
which is 
just awful in my opinion. She is dealing with it but I thought it would
be 
nice for her to be able to use one of the Real Speak voices or something

similar.

If the voices cannot be used without JAWS being installed, is there
anywhere 
she can download some more natural sounding voices to use without it
costing 
an arm and a leg?  Any info about this would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Nikki B.
