Thats probably true - its been awhile since I checked out the current
status. The last time I did check, there were a few open source
non-proprietary packages that were not available for 64 bit. For
example, at the time, there was only one common lisp package available
in 64 bit and the one I use was not yet available (it is now and has
been for about 12 months I think.).

What are you using for a TTS synth? Espeak? 

Unfortunately, I have to run a few proprietary packages due to work
requirements. This is part of why I've not yet moved to 64 bit - not
that I can't, but rather not having the time (or making the time) to
sort out ta mixed 32 and 64 bit environment. I've been told its not
too difficult, but just now, can't risk being down for any length of time.

regards,

Tim
