Me too, but I couldn't tell any difference between how they sound on a
Compaq under XP or a Mac. To me the demos sound the same on either platform.
I was saying I believe the quality has to do with the AT&T TTS engine, not
the platform.

I know. I sure hope they can patch revSpeak for XP somehow. It's all I have
to test on right now. Because of the loss of muscle control, my intended
users are speech impaired. Their other possibilities of controlling the
computer is where I come in with custom combinations of software techniques
and controllers. I can't be running back and forth to the convalescent
center to test on their machines.
