Re: Incomplete Sentences

I have eliminated emacs as a suspect with the "incomplete sentence" problem
I am having.  I tested ViaVoice by just executing "tcl outloud" and got the
identical problem:  I hear a few words and then just snippets.  The sound
card works fine in all other applications. So now it is narrowed down to
just the outloud tcl script and the ViaVoice software.  Does anybody have
any ideas where to go from here?  (Don't say it!  I won't give up until I
conquer this problem!)
