Like I just wrote in my last message I really don't know of any place
where the generic Sapi versions of the Scansoft voices can be located
these days. A friend of mine wanted a copy like I own, that came
with Jaws 8 and Openbook 8, that works with games, screen readers, and
everything else, and unfortunately they can't be found anywhere. I've
checked the Nuance web site and there is no listing for the voices as
their once was a couple years back, and if you get them with one of
their Scansoft products like Omnipage apparently the voices only work
with Omnipage and nothing else. If you get them with Jaws or Openbook
from Freedom Scientific they only work with Freedom Scientific
products. If you buy them from Nextup they only work with products
like Text Aloud, News Aloud, and Weather Aloud. If you buy a GPS with
them on them they only work on that GPS device of course. In short,
there seams to be a universal change in the way Nuance does business
and how exactly they license their Real Speak voices. There doesn't
seam to be a way to license and use them as a standard generic Sapi
voice any more. At least not publically anyway.
