Installation works OK. However it is necessary to use "winecfg" and set the Windows version to "NT 4.0" for Acapela's license code to generate some license files in C:\Infovox2.lic, whereas the installation for the SAPI5 runtime needs the Windows version to be Windows ME. I suggest first setting Windows ME and install SAPI5 runtime by downloading speechsdk51.exe from Microsoft, then set Windows version to NT 4.0 and install Infovox.
What does not
App thinks it does not have a license to run. Running the license manager (wine ".wine/drive_c/Program Files/Acapela Group/Infovox Desktop 2.2/BabLicMan.exe") says "no license found", and the "30-day trial version" button is grayed out. (This happens even in NT4 mode.
What was not tested
Because the app claims not to have a license to run, I was not able to test the voice itself.
