"A dark power is growing in the depths of two wizard kingdoms. The powerful Prospero and his sidekick Roger Bacon must navigate the magical realm to defeat their ancient enemy."
Don't know about you, but that sounds totally ghey to me. Wizards? Prospero? "Roger Bacon"? Please.
Oh, and Seumas: on second thought, the disabling of text to speech is possibly so that you can't have the book read directly to a .WAV file, and then use dictation software to auto-transcribe it into "real" text. Stupid idea, but who knows?
