What works

Nothing. The program still does not install completely. 

However, if you close out the installation, the program will start to run, to the point where it attempts to recognize the sound system. Then it tells you that the wine sound bitrate is incompatible with NatSpeak. But this is untrue. NatSpeak requires a 16-bit which is the wine default.

So it may be that the installation glitch is not essential to running the program, and that there is another bug that prevents startup.

Additional Comments

I try installing this product about once a week. The program would probably run well if it got by the installation glitch. I used all current versions of all Ubuntu software. I use the Studio version to have access to the low-latency kernel, which runs NatSpeak just a hair faster.
