Actually lightspeed, that's the best news I've heard all day!

You and Art have done, you geniuses, you both pulled the same error and pinpointed the issue.

Note: I have corrected for errors and updated the Webscraper.py file in the Control/Godel directory, if you wouldn't mind replacing that with the new one provided in the Ultra Hal 7.zip, please and thank you. This will resolve the error and the program should now be operational.

Please keep me posted on updates!

OKAY I FOLLOWED THE NEW INSTRUCTIONS AND DOWNLOADED ALL FILES AND PUT THEM IN the area's mentioned  step six did everything no errors but on 7 . it did not create a data 2 .txt file in the area it was suppose to . so i didn't do any more  because it still is not creating that file. see pics below.
Alright everyone,

I have updated the code an slimmed things down a little because I think I bit off more than I could chew, however, I updated the instructions, please replace all files and start from step 1. I'm confident this is it.

Thanks for hanging out!

Hi -- I have a Zabaware CD from 2009 that has both the Ultra Hal Text-To-Speech Reader and an AT&T Natural Voice (Mel).  I'm sure I was able to get this all working with the Mel voice on whatever computer I had at the time (Windows XP, I'm pretty sure).  Now I'm installing this on a different Windows XP computer, and the only voice that shows up in the drop-down box of the Ultra-Hal Reader is "Microsoft Sam".  Does anyone know how I can get Mel in there?

Note:  This same question was asked by Jander65 in 2010 but got no serious response.

It seems to me we paid a good price for this CD, and I'd rather not buy anything newer, especially since this CD should be contemporary with the computer I'm trying to install it on.

Thanks for any possible help! -- Marty

on testing thepart of"  If everything went smoothly then the hard part is done and we can begin a small test to make sure everything is in order. To make sure everything is installed correctly, simply open CMD for a final time, then drag and drop the godel.py python script from the Control\Godel directory into CMD and then hit enter. This will run the script. If no errors pop up and a "data2.txt" file appears in the Control/Godel directory, then all is ready for Hal."

i am getting this error . i have it in two parts(the picture .)

i did all the instructions and on the third part to test . but it gave no errors but did not install a data 2  file it just has data txt.

here is the last part i did. and what it showed .


When you see a return in CMD to C:/user with no errors then installation will be complete, it can take a moment, but it looks like yours is updating correctly. Did you encounter any other errors in installation or have you completed the test and returned the data2.txt file? Please keep me updated.

okay after i posted , i waited and after a while it did more downloading and finished completely, so i am doing the copy and past "pip install torch==1.11.0+cu113 torchvision==0.12.0+cu113 torchaudio==0.11.0 --extra-index-url https://download.pytorch.org/whl/cu113" part now and its installing.  :)  don't touch that dial lol !

on a side note i think it would have been helpful to have posted the last part of the line of the finished update so a person knows it's all done.

  i  downloaded the files and dragged the create bat file in and it downloaded a bunch without any errors that i saw . it now has a blinking line .the last line it shows is .  running set up.py install for wikipedia... done . so is all this done ?? before i go to the next step?? nothing was said about what the last installed line was suppose to be .

(i had done as art did earlier and got the error i just hadn't had a chance to post and say it.  so i downloaded this new update again.
