Thanks for the tip, but it's also a matter of cost.  While we're
pretty much resigned to no _free_ soft-synths, DECtalk units are twice
the price of the computer, way out of our price range, and while the
Soft-talk ($40?) is very inviting, there's no way to tell in advance
if it's going to have all the same problems as the free packages.

Like I said, ViaVoice is the devil we know :)

... unless someone knows where we can get a second-hand DECTalk card
for about the same money ...
