I don't think this is a "feature" yet in the Windows version, but has anyone tried using the Windows Narrator on Scrivener? Or is this something that might be incorporated in future versions?

I tried running Narrator while Scrivener was running, but while it read the Window and project name, it wouldn't read anything else in the window (especially the actual text of the project, which was what I was hoping for). Any suggestions to get this to work, even if it's not native to the program?

Otherwise, does anyone have any suggestions for other text-to-speech programs what will work with Scrivener (preferably that uses SAPI5 voices, since I do like some of the voices I have installed)?

I'm a Scrivener enthusiast and (used to be) experienced in PC/network support... but I am not a Scrivener expert. And I'm still editing on my first book. So take any opinion or advice I offer with a large grain of salt.
