Make your computer verbally address you on Windows startup. 

Well, hello there.
In this tutorial, I'll be teaching you how you can make your computer talk/address you on Windows startup/login.
This is pretty simple, really.
We're simply going to be using a VBScript for this.

1. Open up Notepad/text editor of your choice. 
2. Copy and paste the following code onto your document:
Dim text, talk
text="Hello Arcane.cfg"
Set talk=CreateObject("sapi.spvoice")
talk.Speak text
Replace "Hello Arcane.cfg" with whatever you want your computer to say on startup.

3. Save the file as "ABC.vbs". You can replace ABC with any name of your choice, just make sure you save it as a .vbs file.

4. Go to C:\Users\Arcane\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup and paste ABC.vbs there.

NOTE: Replace C with the drive to which Windows is installed on your PC and Arcane with your Windows username.

That's pretty much it.
Restart/Log off and login to see your welcome script in action.

- Arcane.cfg.
