When we got the SBLive Creative Soundblaster Platinum sound card, it included many lite versions of other programs. One was TextAssist text-to-speech. We were able to upgrade to the full version for a small fee, less than you would normally pay; $15 as opposed to $50 or something like that. This may also be the case with some of the complimentary extra programs that come with VCom's System Suite. It is always worth checking into possible discount upgrades, in such a situation. _____________________________________________________________ http://www.LocalStreets.com - A Localized Shopping Search Engine For a web-based membership management utility and information on list policies, please see http://nibec.com/24hoursupport/ To unsubscribe, send a blank email to 24hoursupport-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with "unsubscribe" (without quotes) in the subject.
