Re: Incomplete Sentences



Hi all,

Here the problem is the same with my laptop. I tried to run ViaVoice
examples like the "hello world". the TTS says "hello" and then stops. My
laptop is a compaq armada 100S with a soundcard chip VIA82c686. As someone
here meet the same problem with a such chip and if yes what have you done to
solve it ?
Thanks in advance.

Nath
