Understood,
May I ask what the problem is then? Do you not have an external synthesizer? I do not use freedos, but a later package of ms dos 7.1 I have no issues, but I am not using a sound card.

I have heard about talking dosbox, in fact I helped with the project and I made 
one of the speech synthesis helper applications, but I was hoping to be able to 
have dos running natively without emulation. I have no sight whatsoever so I 
need speech output, and the only ways of speech output available are through 
serial with an external speech synthesizer or via a SoundBlaster or compatible 
with SBTalker, Monologue, TextAssist etc.

Hi Guillem,
granted I am unsure what your goals may be, but have you tried  a relatively 
new project talking dosbox?

I can tell you nothing about it save that  it is supposed to allow for speech 
via dosbox using the sound card etc.
hope this presents a solution for you.

Hi.
Yeah, only reason I asked is because right now my only way of running DOS is 
actually through dosbox, which would make testing it kind of impossible. Before 
I dualboot my PC I want to be sure I'll be able to use it. If I don't have 
speech synthesis I can't use the computer. I would run the screenreaders 
through HX but the problem is that all the DOS screenreaders that I know of are 
16-bit, and I'm not sure if they'd even be able to access all the data they 
need to.

Thanks.

Just for clarification, does this only work with programs loaded
inside dosbox inside HX, or is there any way to get it to work under
DOS directly, with HX loaded but without DOSbox? I'm still thinking
of dualbooting one of my machines with DOS but I need some way of
doing either USB serial port emulation or modern soundcard support
for speech synthesis.

I do not know, please check the website or try to find out. If it
works in dosbox, it already is quite nice, but of course it would
be even better if it also worked for old DOS programs.
