I don't need to put it on JFWLite.  I'm only going to send this information 
You can
download the SAPI file from FS.
I found this technical support notice called
The quality of the VoiceWare Kate and Paul synthesizers is poor when using
them with JAWS. How can I improve the voice quality?
It says that Note: The voices are available from NeoSpeech.
There is a SAPI 5 file you can download to improve the quality.  Read the
support notice for the details.

    i have a better way of using the neo speech voices all you need is an 
updated sapi 5 ini file which i have, and it works great.

      Hi Michael, yes you can use your neospeech voices with jaws. They will 
appear in the list of voices when you change your jaws synthesizer to sapi5. 
You may notice though that the voices don't sound happy, they may sound 
lispy and/or crackly. This is because Jaws needs to know the frequency of 
the voices.
        To do this you need to get the cls id number for each of the voices, 
which involves going into the registry, and then pasting that number into 
your sapi5.ini file, which will be in your jaws folder.
        If you'd like I can send you step by step instructions how to do it, 
but if you're not happy editing the registry you may need further help doing 
it. If you want the instructions let me know offlist.

        Hi All,

        My Kurzweil 1000 software already comes with the Neo Speech engines. 
It has both the male and female voices.  is there any way to get these to 
work with Jaws?  I found the folder that contained the Neo Speech files but 
I'm not really sure how to get Jaws to use these. .
