Is it me or have you all noticed a slight delay with the SayEzB Voice. In other words, when the command is executed half or most of the words are not being spoken. Has anyone else seen this?

Does it do it with the EZ-B Soundboard too?
Have you checked the speaker is properly connected to the EZ-B? It wont take much for the speaker to not be in contact with the two contacts on the EZ-B, so if the shell is a little loose it could cause the connection between speaker and EZ-B to break therefore no sound.
In my script I am using the sayezb command once. I noticed after the sleep 2000 I added another sayezb command. That did not miss any words when the command executed. The first instance of sayezb always for me never finishes what I have In the quotation marks.
But thanks for the info and help.
Not sure how to post script here but I can type.
SayEzb("Welcome to my robot.")
SayEzb("Take a look around my shop")
That's it. That's all I have began to figure out so far. The first sayezb command all you hear thru the EZb speaker is "my robot" Then i wait 4 seconds to wait for it to say that. Then the next one comes thru with the entire sentence.
Also I noticed you have a period in your first command. Don't use that. This may not be what is causing the problem but it's unnecessary.
Sorry about the tiny thread jack..., hope this helps
This is truly great news and confirms some of the things I've been experiencing. Although I'm not having as nasty of a problem as @WayneA, I'm still getting a few clips at the end or beginning of a word in a sentence here and there. I find the problem gets worse when my AVG anti virus is running a scan in the background. I'm running a older Dual Core Intel with a fresh install of Win 7 as the OP System. WayneA may be running a old and clogged up install of Win 7 which may be why his problem is much worse than mine.
EDIT: As far as a a fast WiFi connection; Do a scan of the other networks that are around you and see what channels they are on. Pick a channel to run your home network WiFi router on that has few or no other people on it. Lots of people just plug in their home router and use the default channel. This causes everyone in your neighborhood including yourself to be on the same channel and slow down your connection.
@Rich: What would you recommend?
Cpu brand , socket and mhz/speed
Ram amount / speed
Mobo if known
HD TYPE and age
Router brand and model number
Lastly a screen shot or list of processes running in task manager when the delay is happening.
This can help us determine what a " slow pc" is considered with the new ARC requirements so every new member can optimize their setup to exceed the one your having slight issues with.
Thanks a bunch ! I hope you have lots of fun using EZ Robot products - Josh S
