  1. Your discussion of text-to-speech reminded me of the first time I installed this software at home on both of our home computers. My husband and I were overcome with laughter as we had our computers read to each other. Our speculations on exactly what types of reading material would cause a laptop to appear in 9 months were pretty hilarious. What a couple of geeks!
