Hi Dark, Smile. Well, glad to help. Actually, there have been a number of mainstream programs out there like this that use Sapi voices. Text To Audio, Text Aloud, and the Cepstral voices comes with a program called Swift Talker or something like that. People have been buying and using these types of programs for years in the publishing industry, and that's not the only use for them either.
As I said earlier Sapi voices are employed in all kinds of mainstream applications. For example, Omnipage, written by Scansoft, uses the Scansoft voices to read aloud scanned documents in Omnipage. I imagine this feature wasn't added just for accessibility, but is appreciated by corperations that would like to have documents read aloud as they are scanned etc. This is another case in point how adding accessibility into a product from the start just works out for everybody. Anyway, if you want your writer friends to get a nice text to audio type program tell them to head over to http://www.nextup.com and check out Text Aloud as well as the various voices they have available for it. Cheers!
