I'm looking for information on the SoundBlaster and how to make low-level (actually above hardware level if possible) function calls to program the speech synthesis capabilities. I've come to a dead-end. The Creative Labs site isn't much help unless you register as a developer which I am doing right now. I've created a front-end VB app for the TextAssist program but I want to do away with it if possible. Also, I'd like info on MIDI specs and accessing SB's MIDI without resorting to 3rd party commercial products. Any information, links, etc., would be appreciated! (Info can be either for VB or C)

Well...for the MIDIs...VB4, 5 have OCX files for playing MIDIS...If you don't have them, email me your email address( mine is ben@kescom.net) and I'll send it to you. As for speech synthesis...if you have monologue for windows, there's a way to access that dll...the card itself has NO speech synthesis capabilities...it's the software...also, Microsoft has Agent - it has speech synthesis...I'll comment you a web address...
