[Blindapple] How to make ProDOS system programs talk

I think I have a prodos disk that talks.  As I recall those
programs were the ones we had to modify fe89 and fe93 to a ea
which is a no op.  I'm certain my filer and convert speak.  I'll
check for sure and can send it if I can get it transported over.
I'll let you know.

No progress on this front yet, but I do remember having the
user's disk when I was in school using one of these Apple //e
and I remember the utilities speaking at some point. I have
upgraded my
MAME ROM for the Apple //e and now use the platinum edition with
number pad, but the utilities on this disk are still not
speaking. This
is with the latest Textalker for ProDOS, version 3.1.3 according
to the
copyright and version notice displayed if I brun it while it is
running, along with a copy of the ProDOS user's disk I downloaded
the Internet Archive. I should mention that I have tried running
filer and convert from an already talking Davex shell running on
a hard
disk image, from basic.system on the same hard disk, and also
basic.system booted from the Textalker disk itself, and in all
cases I
have no speech once the program is running. Was there a ProDOS
disk that was modified somehow so that the filer and convert
would speak, or was there something I did to make it work, a
ProDOS version, an earlier Textalker, something even more crazy?
thing, although this was a long time ago, I seem to recall these
utilities not initially speaking, but I don't recall what I had
to do to
make them speak.
