Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What you are looking for is called a screen reader. Windows includes one as part of the accessibality tools, or you can purcahse a third party one.

In Windows Vista it’s available in the control pannel under Text To Speach.
In Windows XP it’s available in the control pannel under Speach.

Alternately, there are many programs that do this available on the internet– some of which are free. Try these:

    If the windows speech one does not work satisfactorily then try Dragon Naturally Speaking. It is costly but works great.

    This is true, there are several third party tools which can be purchased. Most are fairly pricy, and Dragon is the best of the 3rd party tools.
