Version 1.4
Released October 24, 2008

Fixed a documentation error:  the property is called UseSAPIAsBackup
rather than UseSAPI.  Added the utility RunFunc.exe for running a loaded
JAWS function via the command line, analagous to RunScript.exe for running
a JAWS script .

Added methods for creating console mode programs with almost any language.
Such programs tend to be speech friendly for users who like entering
commands as text, and then hering the results.  The methods assume that
the calling executable has been compiled as a Windows console-mode
program.  windows with a graphical user interface (GUI) can still be
created from such a program, but using standard input and output streams
requires the program to be built so that it either opens a console window
or launches from one.  The methods are as follows:

ConsoleSetTitle(sTitle) -- Set the title of the console window

ConsoleMaximizeWindow() -- Maximize the console window

ConsoleReadLine(sPrompt) -- Prompt for a line of console input and return
it as a string

ConsoleWrite(sText) -- Write text to the console

ConsoleWriteLine(sText) -- Write text to the console with a trailing line
feed character (ASCII 10)

ConsoleClearScreen -- Clear the console screen

The Samples subfolder contains a batch file, run_interactive_VBScript.bat,
which creates an interactive VBScript environment using these methods.
You can enter VBScript statements or expressions, and hear their results.
Variables may be created dynamically and then use in subsequent
