Speak & Mail will notify you when new mail arrives by reading the message header and contents according to your preferences. Speak & Mail enables your computer to 'talk to you'. You can listen to your e-mails, web pages, documents, help files or anything else you copy to the clipboard. Just keep the animated character on top of your desktop and click on it whenever you want it to read, plus a new feature that allows automatic reading from the clipboard when any new text is copied to the clipboard.
Speak & Mail 2000 will bring your desktop to life by telling you jokes, sing, remind you of your appointments or just feel tired and sleep. In addition, Speak & Mail features voice recognition technology which can be used to launch applications, web sites, play some music, shut down, restart your computer or just reply. You can change voices and/or languages with the download of extra speech engines.
