Help with win32 com_error exception

Sorry if this is sent twice, but I didn't see it get posted the first time.

I've got a fatal bug using Parente's pyTTS with Python 2.3 on Windoze 32
using MS SAPI 5.1 and Hammond's win32 module. The test program is
import pyTTS
tts = pyTTS.Create()
tts.Speak('Hello world.')

The resulting debug trace is:

PythonWin 2.3.5 (#62, Feb 8 2005, 16:23:02) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)]
on win32.

The system does not have a sound card --- could that be an issue?

My head is about to explode trying to solve this problem, so your help and
suggestions will be much appreciated.

Could be.

-2147352567 = 0x80020009
-2147201015 = 0x80045009

If you search for these numbers in hex, you may have more luck.

e.g.

SPERR_NO_DRIVER 0x80045009 -2147201015
There is no wave driver installed.
