    I just upgraded my box from XP Pro 32 bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I installed UT2004 tonight and all is good EXCEPT that my text to speech doesn't seem to want to work anymore. I did search around here but found no other threads about it WITH Windows 7 as the OS.

    Is there a known fix?
    Does anyone here have Windows 7 and their test to speech feature works?

    I prefer to have it on so I won't have to look down and read real fast when somebody chats with me. I prefer to keep playing and just listen to what everybody is chatting about.

    Thanks in advance for any aid rendered!

    It stands for Internet Relay Chat or something like that. I suspected that might be needed so clicked it too one of the times I was trying to get it to work and viola! Let us know how it goes for you and good luck!

    Go to your Control Panel and then Speech Recognition and the to the Text to Speech in the upper left hand corner. Click Preview Voice. Do you hear it? Are all of the settings there about what you want? Now go back and try again in the game. Hear anything there now?

    I think I read where in Win 7 that you lose the voices that are in the game but get the voice in this tool. I think you have to run the preview once and then the game makes the connection to it somehow and then it works. Let us know. Peace!
