Janina and list,
I would appreciate a list of any companies of names you know who are associated with this incarnation of IBMTTS.
It's worth a shot to see if we can contact one or all of these entities; doing nothing, as we (read that "me") have seen with speakup leads to a buggered situation.
Janina, didn't you work with these folks a while back distributing TTSynth? Or was that someone else...
Thanks for your help.
