Posted by Rich On April - 1 - 200915 COMMENTS

Recently, I showed you how to write a simple VBScript that takes input by text converts it into speech.this script proved to be quite popular and attracted over 180,000 visitors.

Windows Guides reader Harry was inspired by this post and kindly made a tool for all Windows Guides readers. This tool performs the same functions as the original script provided but also gives you a nice graphical user interface to work with when you want your computer to speak back to you. Having your computer speech you can be a lot of fun and now this tool is available to all readers to play around with. In some parts of the world, it still April Fools’ Day– maybe you can think of some fun things you can do with this nifty little program.

You can download this tool for free below:

If you are having trouble with some websites not displaying properly, this guide is for you. Because there are so many ways to render web pages and so many different ways people create them, there are often problems with displaying websites in different browsers. Internet Explorer 8 is no exception to this rule. In fact, Microsoft has built IE8 in a way that ensures websites display properly if they are compliant with W3C standards. For now, many websites may not display properly, because they were built around older, non-compliant code. In this guide, you will learn how to run IE 8 in compatibility mode, which overcomes this problem.
