Question: How can I make additional SAPI synthesizers available to OpenBook?
The lines in the file would look like this:
engine=L&H Speech RealSpeak
I don't think you can use them with Open book. as OB doesn't allow you to change synths, at least I haven't been able to find.
When I first installed them, they did slow things down a bit, but after doing a defrag and a scandisk, things got back to normal.
I do notice that if I am scanning in grayscale and 400 dpi and using the Naturals, that sometimes them entire voice part of Kurzweil won't work. This happens rarely but is annoying which is why I use the Naturals for reading after the scan is done.
I have played with Text aloud, I think it is called from www.nextup.com
and it works well.
