I would like Richard's (2007) text to speech programme to CHAIN programmes of mine. I have tried to do this but without success.
Assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

I have replied to this by direct email. It makes no sense to use CHAIN these days; it's a legacy keyword provided for compatibility with ancient programs. There are many reasons not to use it, not least that the program which is CHAINed must be in (tokenised) source form and therefore is readily readable by anybody, destroying any security the EXE encryption would otherwise provide.

If you want to incorporate text-to-speech capabilities in your applications then do just that: include the necessary code within your own programs. If you prefer to 'separate out' the TTS functionality for some reason, then make that the 'readable' program (no security or confidentiality issues there) and then CALL it from the programs that need it. Or, equivalently, make it a library and INSTALL it.

It is not difficult to do things 'properly', using techniques appropriate for the 21st century. Reverting to 1980s coding style is not the answer.

Richard.
