in reply to Chatterbox to Festival Server (TTS output)

Thank you, atcroft!

Because I run WinXP and had trouble installing Festival under Cygwin, I modified this (slightly) to use Microsoft Direct Speech Synthesis (part of the Microsoft Speech API). My modifications were based largely on code found here, and of course, lots of assistance from, and hand-holding by, atcroft himself. (Thanks again!)

(99.99% of this is still atcroft's work, and he deserves the credit.)
