i did tried tht... but the problem is microsoft reader usses windows' speech engine and tht can only be tweaked from control panel in windows...

so i need to know where in "WINDOWS" or in "PROGRAM FILES" actually the apps of control panel are... i know for sure that 'control panel' itself only hold shortcuts so if any buddy knows the destination folder tht would help...

Well in windows you can use this cpl file to launch the 'Speech Propertires' dialog box:

\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Speech\sapi.cpl

thanxx… i alreay read that blog and it was wth motivated me to install Microsoft Reader in the first place. but sadly that guy doesnt mention any thin Text-to-speech. i even mailed him and he said he only needed to open .LIT files and he doesnt use text to speech. any way if FIRESTORM’s information is right i wud be able to solve the thingy myself…

For text to speech, there are many good native alternatives in Linux as I mentioned in other thread you asked.
