If I remember rightly, windows frotz and win frotz are actually two
different programs, --- though they are similar (I'm not sure if windows
frotz is an earlier version).
I do know win frotz tts is built on an older version of win frotz than the
current one, because I actually foundthat win frotz tts won't play some of
the infocom games like king arthur, where as standard win frotz will. Tts is
convenient, ---- but I played using Hal's virtual focus for a long while
(actually a couple of years before I started playing audio games), so I
don't find this too much of a pest.
in fact, i originally used windows frotz on my old laptop with windows 98,
but found the speech not to work (I had no idea sapi even existed back then
or that I had to install it), but found Hal quite sufficient.
It's a shame tts wasn't updated to the latest win frotz, but I'm generally
not sure how the tts developement is going, or even if developement is
continuing at all.
Btw, this really! takes me back.
Beware the Grue!
