Regarding the issue with ranked spelling and the dictionary, I'm not sure where 
the list comes from, but it is not using the American Herritage dictionary 
which comes  bundeled with the software. That is for sure. 
Another weird thing ranked spelling does is to offer an upper case alternative 
where such is not warranted. 
As for the speech, I don't like Eloquence and via Voice, so I don't use either, 
except on my laptop. The big thing is, don't install both. So if you have not 
instaled eloquence from your Window eyes, then you should be 
ok installing ViaVoice with K1000. I prefer the Neospeech voices that came with 
k1k on a separate cd to the ATT Natural voices. But that's a matter of taste. 
And in any case, I don't use any of them very often, 
because I still like Flextalk better than any of them. What voices you use is 
really a matter of personal taste. If you have heard eloquence and dislike it, 
then you won't like Via Voice either, as they sound pretty much 
the same. The voices like ATT and neo speech are not as responsive for editing 
in my opinion. I'm with Mike on the tripple talk. Its certainly the most 
responsive of the available speech choices I have here.
