Text to Speechby mdog (Pilgrim)

mdog has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
So I'd really like to be able to do Text to Speech on a Windows machine.
I found an article on Winmag that talks about implementing a TTS (Text to Speech) engine and then making calls to the engine via perl. All I get it to do is make a popping noise.
Plus, I found Bruce Winter's explanation of TTS for misterhouse -- it pretty much matches up with the Winmag example.
I, also, found Kevin Lenso's article from The Perl Journal on text to speech but the complete code isn't anywhere that I can find.
The best I can do so far is take a commercial product that takes command line text and use perl to exec the commercial product with text that I format in Perl. This is obviously super-weak.
Does anyone have any expierence with TTS on Windows machines and could someone please post an example?
Thanks in advance,
