TEXT TO SPEECH

My father is losing his ability to read the text on his comp, Could anyone
suggest a program that can "read" his email etc. to him. Hopefully it can be
user friendly and not terribly expensive. I would be grateful of any help.
Thank you M.V.

Doesn't windows xp have a built in thing? In the accessories folder in
start/programs there's a bit called accessibility and I think the
gadget is called Narrator

Microsoft comes with its own Text to Speech software. Its called "Narrator"
and can be found under Start>programs>Accessories>Accessability>Narrator.
There are a lot of other useful things there like the Magnafier, and
On-Screen Keyboard. You should expeirament with some of them. Also in the new
Microsoft Office 2003 Software, there is something called "Speech
Recognition" which allows the user to talk into a mic and the computer will
turn the speech to text. It works in all of the Office 2003 programs like
Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel. You can also command the programs by
saying the name of the command. For example, if you wanted to open the File
menu, you would just have to say, "File" and it would pop open.

Hope this helps :D
