My operating system is windows XP and I would like a text-to-speech application that could read Microsoft word and Outlook e-mail messages from their

Right now I'm using Dragon NaturallySpeaking 9.5 for my speech to text application. With this program I can speak and have it automatically type,
whatever I say into the microphone. What I'm looking for is a program that can read text from an e-mail I received in Microsoft Outlook or a
Microsoft word document. I know Microsoft's Windows XP has the capability, but I'm not sure how to initialize the program...or, if I need to
download something from Microsoft.
sorry i forgot to mention, the text to speech stuff built into windows can be activated from the accessibility options int he control panel. overall
the libraries that provide the text to speech are always there. you just might need some program to utilize those libraries in the way that you need.
