    what a shock

    In the middle of the silent deep dark night clicking on roadrunner it all off a sudden speaks to me!! Loud! I sat shaking on my seat.

    And the strange thing is, it speaks to me in Dutch (well at least a Dutch voice saying english words). My basic XP version is a Dutch version. I did not even know there was a Durch voice somewhere hidden in de computer. And I can't find it. If I click on speech in my control panel it only shows Micosofts Sam (English).

    Where did this magic come from dit you (NM) put this voice in? And why does it speak Dutch? Can you change it to english?

    Well, chances are you must have had a program installed that put it in there.. I'm pretty sure the installshield doesn't install anything speech related. The binary distro of RR is only the bare minimun to run it, so no chances of that doing anything either.. I would not discard the possibility that "windows" update downloaded and installed it through one of its updates...

    Is he not referring to the "Voice Enabled" option on the RRConfig settings. Mine were switched on my default when I installed RR to try instead of Mediacar, and it freaked me out too!
