Just so you know... The Soap Calculator now uses Microsoft Agent technology to provide a little extra help and to make using it more fun. What is this technology you might ask? Its the use of animated characters to make your experience more entertaining by interaction, and putting the character to work. The core files for this technology are already installed if you have Windows XP, 2000, or ME as your operating system, but a few support files will be needed to allow audible speech. These files can be downloaded below. On the other hand, if you are running Windows 98 you will have to download the core files along with the extra files listed below.
MS Agent support was removed in Windows 7. Works with Windows 7 and 8.

Requirements:

Step 1: disk image Install The Soap Calculator (4.53 MB) Current Win 7, Win 8 Version - No MS Agent Support

Download the above spchapi.exe setup program and run it to install the SAPI 4.0 runtime. The SAPI 4.0 runtime provides the speech interface so you can hear the MS Agent Characters voice through your speakers.  

Step 3: disk image Install the Text-to-Speech Engine  (997 KB)  (Install with XP, Vista, Win 2000, 98)

Download the above tv_enua.exe setup program and run it to install the TTS Engine. The Lernout & Hauspie TruVoice Text-to-Speech (TTS) Engine (English Version) provides text to speech output so you can hear the MS Agent Characters voice through your speakers.
