What works

Everything once "installed" and a dll override is in use.

* Text-To-Speech, all modes.

* Loading of Text (.txt) Files.

What does not

The install crashes and won't finish all the way, even though it does install -- just ignore any errors and the fact that it never finishes.

You will find the program in your Wine's "c:/Temp/Ogif/TalkAny".


What was not tested

Everything I can think of was tested, so nothing.

Additional Comments

You need "mfc40.dll" from dlldump or another reputable site in order for the program to start. Once you have it, place it in your "c:/windows/system", and it will run perfectly. Admin note: use winetricks to install mfc40.
