Yeah, already tried that, didn't help any. *grumble*

Because I use a screen reader, I have multiple sapi voices installed, 
(though I rarely use them), but I haven't played with the code enough 
just yet to see why it fails when it tries to select one, when not 
selecting one works just fine <shrug>

It's important enough, I'll try to figure it out, but if it fails, it's 
not a real issue, since the default voice is fine with me anyway.

On the screen reader, I actually use the espeak engine, so I don't use 
the sapi voices under normal circumstances anyhow, but it would be 
useful to know how to switch voices, perhaps I could add a read out loud 
functionality to my epub reader.  Some folks seem to like that sort of
