Following up my earlier message shown below, I uninstalled JFW 11, including 
User Settings, and reinstalled it from the full download file.  I then 
installed DECtalk Access32 as a speech synthesizer.  This made the factory 
Voice Profile available.  However, when I switched to it from Eloquence, 
nothing changed, and Eloquence was still doing the talking.  I can switch to 
the other factory voice profiles, and they work normally.  I can only conclude 
that DECtalk Access32 is not going to work with this build of JFW 11.  
Apparently, something was done between the last Beta and the final release to 
break support for this speech synthesizer.

  Subject: DECtalk Access32 Not Working In JFW 11 Final Release

  I have been using DECtalk Access32 from GW Micro on my XP Home system for 
several versions of JFW including the recent public betas of JFW 11.  I 
installed the final release of JFW 11 this afternoon, and now DECtalk Access32 
doesn't work.  I can select it from the Voice Profiles, but I hear nothing but 
Eloquence.  I find it amazing just how quickly FS can break something that has 
been working all along.

  I guess I'll go back to JFW 10 until I have time to uninstall 11 and start
