I have a free voice from aT&T that came with my aT&T Crystal & Mike, in a
folder called "free voices", and it is much like Microsoft Mary.
It is a little over 7 MB, so if anyone has a way of receiving a file of this
size, I'd be glad to send it to you.

At least OpenBook comes bundled with it. I think that it can also be
purchased directly from IBM, for a very high price, of course...
