Hi, all!

On and off, I have been having a strange problem with the language bar in Windows XP.

Every once in a while, the option for "Additional icons in task bar" is grayed out. When it isn't grayed ou and I highlight text in a Word file, the text-to-speech icon appears in the bar, and clicking it launches the reading of that part of the document.

When the "Additional icons" is grayed out, the text-to-speech icon won't appear, and so I have to revert to DNS to have the document read aloud to me.

Restarting the computer hasn't made any difference.

Does anyone have an idea why this is happening?
