    Default Another Peedy question....

    When I go to install Peedy on my laptop (and even my husband's desktop PC), there are only three links that show up:

    MS Agent Control: Download the Microsoft Agent core components (.exe file, 395K)

    TruVoice Text-To-Speech: Download the Lernout & Hauspie® TruVoice text-to-speech engine (.exe file, 833K)

    MS Agent Character: Download Peedy, the MS Agent Character (.exe file, 3.3 MB)

    Now, I've dowloaded all three on my laptop - Peedy shows up when we click the speaker icon in the 6th grade Social Studies lessons. He will talk his intro, comment when we "move" him, etc. So we can hear him and see the speech bubble as well. He doesn't "read" the lesson though. Is there is something we're doing wrong? Or is it that "4th link" I keep reading about on the forums - I'm only given the option to download the three links I posted above.

    *edited to add, we are running Vista with IE7

    Did you click on the text you wanted him to read (instead of moving him yourself)?

    If that doesn't work, try installing SAPI 4. The link is at the bottom of this page.

    Kelly is right. Sounds like you're missing the SAPI.

    I just posted this link for another member as well. This will give you the four components you need to download.

    That's it! He works! It's strange it gave me only those three links to download when I clicked the speaker for the first time though. Oh well, he's working now and that's what counts
