Page 9 License system: T he license is a hardware USB key (without memory) that has to be plugged into the USB port of the PC to allow the recording of a wave file. When Virtual Speaker is launched without the key plugged-in, it will run in evaluation mode. This mode enables you to read text (play button) in order to hear how the wave will sound like. This way, text can be modified to achieve the best possible quality. This solution enables then: - to install Virtual speaker on as many PCs as necessary. These PCs will be used to modify the text. - to plug the key on one of these PCs to record the text only when the text provides the desired quality. Virtual Speaker: A Virtual Studio
