Special thanks to Professor Fang Zhigang for his invaluable spiritual support and innovative suggestions, as well
as his life philosophy which will probably have fundamental impact on my life (including some principles that I don't
agree, at least at the moment).

1.SDI was developed under VC6, so you'd better compile it using VC6, too.
2.Make sure eci.h, ia3dapi.h, sdi.h are in the same directory, and a3dapi.dll, ibmeci.dll, sdi32.dll in the same
directory with your application.

4.[Important] Because a evaluation version of ViaVoice TTS SDK is used, it may has a 90-day trial period.
Although A3D is Royalty-Free, it doesn't mean you(and I) can use it at your(and my) will.
