Yes. You can also call PlaySound with a special soundframe with text
in it. I don't recall exactly what I did, but I probably published
it. I prefer this method since we could always imagine some software
using the playsound method as well. Besides, the PlaySound with this
sound frame works even with the prefs package installed since it is
basically the way the system works: macintalk defines a new codec.
