Hi, this is not an emergency but im just wondering if anyone knows of one of those type in speak things.

you type in text, hit play or something and it reads out what you typed in a computer like voice...

Tried "Start>Control Panel>Speech" and came up with the message

<could not initialize volume meter. Please select a different audio input device>

I am running XPhome on a laptop.

Any instructions please

Not sure its worth bumping at 8.36am on a SUnday when your original response was only 5.50am on Sunday! It's also winxx's thread (who hasn't replied)

There's a few instances of that error on the web but nothing conclusive, sounds like a prob with the laptop.

Did you try the results of the link under the google search (my click here link above)?
