Saving and Talking

It sounds like the revSpeech bundle is being loaded when you build a 
standalone with all the stacks in a single file, but when you separate 
out the sub-stacks to make them writable, the revSpeech bundle isn't 

Which stack loads the bundle and is that stack in use? Here is a 
section from a routine that I use for a Mac OS X bundle - your path may 

on enableLibraries
   put the fileName of stack "Splash" into tFile
   set the itemDel to "/"
   delete last item of tFile
   set the externals of stack "Main" to tFile & 
   start using stack "Main"
end enableLibraries	

The key is to make sure that whatever stack loads the speech is in use.
