Hello Paul

Although Eloquence ships with JAWS, the speech engine is not accessible to external programs, so in order to generate voices with Eloquence Reed, you need a version of accessible to SAPI4.
If you have IBM ViaVoice X, Eloquence is visible to SAPI4.
But otherwise you are out of luck, as Eloquence isn't a stand alone product.

Best Wishes,
Peter Herngaard

  Hi ONJ and list,

  When trying to build the english.voice file using reed.vbs, it says I don't have that sapi 4 voice installed. I do run jaws with eloquence however.

  Where should I go, to get reed?

  Is the installation that comes with window eyes something I could use?

  Is reed a sapi 4 voice indeed?
