Speech

The Speech applet is used to configure the voice that you'll hear whenever the text-to-speech translation feature is used. Now, the voice offered is still too jerky and coarse for my taste. I remember my first voice-enabled computer game “Parsec” for the TI; that was more than 20 years ago. And the voice it used is just about the same as what is offered here in Windows XP. I can't wait until the sultry voice of the Star Trek: The Next Generation computer becomes the standard.

The Microsoft SAM voice is limited in its configurability. But, Windows XP will accept third-party voices which may offer greater end-user control.
