The only Textalker I know of that pronounces . as dot, etc. is 
Textalker-GS from APH. This was a special version of Textalker designed 
for the IIgs, and won't run on anything else. It runs under ProDOS or 
GS/OS. If that's what you're after, I have one version of it, although 
you won't be running it on an Apple IIe.
