Yes, because revSpeak is apparently broken in XP, i.e., TTS won't work. One
solution is to build a little interface that will have the Mac record all
800 voice feedback selections using one of its voices, and import them to
the Win stacks.

No way to deal with reading back the text compositions created by the user,
though. Bummer. One of the major utilities is to have the thing talk for a
speech-impaired user.

Too many. I have no intention of manually recording 800 words and phrases
for custom software at this time. It would cost them more than a good used
iMac, in which case they might as well buy one (which I wish they would
do...we could have had a working edition a month ago).
