Hi Rinaldo,
there is the free mbrola tts software. The core engine is also
available for DOS. The "text to pronounciation" software is
available for DOS at least for Dutch, probably also for German.
The voices work for all operating systems. But - you cannot run
mbrola in the background in DOS. I suggest to use Linux for
screenreader and tts. What kind of hardware do you have? You
can run DOS in DOSEMU in Linux if you prefer the DOS user
interface. What kind of screen reader do you have, by the way,
serial port, printer port, usb, other?
