I was just exploring around on my windows XP control panel (I just formatted the drive and started from scratch, I do that sometimes). There was this speech properties section where "Micorsoft Sam" would read to me whatever I typed into this box. That was amusing for a minute or two, the real question is how can I use this? Can the computer read out loud what I have typed in microsoft word for example or might it be able to read my e-mail to me? What can I do with this as it sits on my computer now, as I am not interested enought to spend any moeny on it? TED Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
