say words and phrases.
MMB is one of the first Multimedia Authoring tools supporting
TTS is be supported using following commands:
Install MS Text-to-Speech Engine from specified path.

fast install it. You have to just put the TTS exe file on your CD and
the rest is very fast and automatic.

the comand will continue with no delay.
