Glynn & Gray's "The Beginner's Guide to Mathematica Version 3"
tantalizing mentions two commands for converting Mathematica text to
- the "low-level packet" SpeakTextPacket[text] (page 264)

Do the two commands work at all with the currently-released Mathematica
3.0.1? (Note that G & G refer here and there so a version 3.1.)
