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

 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?
