QUESTION: We're always seeing it on TV: John Doe logs onto his computer and the computer says "Welcome, John." Well, I noticed that a colleague of mine has the same thing happen when he logs onto his Windows 7 laptop. How do I do that?? Do I need a special program? Thanks. - John (not Doe) 

 


ANSWER: Actually it's pretty easy and you don't have to buy or even download any software to do it. Just open Notepad and type the following text: 


 


Dim speaks, speech speaks="Welcome, John" Set speech=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice") speech.Speak speaks 


 


Save the file with the .vbs extension and put it in the Startup folder.
