Hi Alice! Sorry but the American heritage version that is truly accessible has 
been out of the market for a very long time now. It is the best writing tool 
I've ever had. I still have the original disk but is scratched and good thing 
is I made not one but two backups. Right now I'm looking for something similar 
that I can use with windows7 and I'm even willing to dish-out big money if only 
I could find something as good and friendly as the American Heritage.

  Hi,  Vic, 
      Where did you find the American Heritage? I'm still using XP and JAWS 9, 
so it should work for me. It might be a good alternative/addition to and such. 
      Good luck finding something for your new system.

    Hi all!

    Since windows 3.1 I've been using a really nice and Jaws friendly talking 
dictionary which is American heritage v3.5 and I've used it until XP. Just got 
a new computer with windows 7 today and of course I cannot install it anymore. 
I have windows 7 home but am willing to upgrade to pro if it would make it work 
again. But the really good thing is if I were to find a speech friendly 
dictionary and thesaurus that will work with win7 off the box. Does anyone have 
any suggestion?
