The output from the Speak function is Null - so I guess there is no 
immediate way to solve your problem.

However, the free Audacity software can record the actual digital sound 
being sent to your sound card (since this is digital, there is no loss 
of quality involved here). Make sure you use the Export button to save 
the result in a WAV format (the default is a format known only to Audacity).
