The script is currently configured to create .dirname.tbx clips for you.
If and when the file name and extension are changed, it will need to be
updated. I think it still works with the current builds, however - it
did as of the 12th, at least. If you're running Windows XP, you probably
have all you need to generate the .tbx clips already. If not, you need
to install the SAPI 5 voices from Microsoft in one form or another. I
think Aman Singer recently posted a link to some software that would do
this in a much smaller package than the huge MS Speech SDK. I don't have
the link handy ATM, but if you search recent posts it ought to turn up.
