Ok, something had been meaning to get around to trying out for a bit, and just 
got around to it, and worked fine is that the realSpeak scansoft CD got with my 
original jaws8 install package refused to let me install the independent 
scansoft voices on my windows7 64 bit machine - these are specifically the sapi 
5.0 voices that are independent/stand-alone/usable by all software, and not 
just limited to use by freedom scientific products, like the currently 
available realSpeak voices you can find on the FS site are.

Anyway, just installed them into the virtual version of windows XP 32bit that 
am running inside the VMWare player software on this widnows7 64 bit machine, 
partly for what you call backward compatibility etc., and they work fine 
therein, which means that now won't have to do something like boot up my spare 
laptop, which still runs windows XP itself, if I want to do something like use 
DSpeech to render text content into the MP3/audio output versions etc.

Stay well
