It was a few years since I saw it. It only worked with MiNT and I never
tested it. It could be used for different OS events. For speech I don't know.

I have no info on the current status of Fenix. fVDI is starting to get useable.
Johan showed me a demo and it was very impressive. In mono it was not far behind
NVDI and then it wasn't even very optimised yet. In colour modes it wasn't very
impressive at the moment. Actually it was the slowest I have ever seen. ;-)
