I had the old EXE file, which was a zip, of the old blind version of Miranda NG. So, what I did is install the old blind version, updated everything, removed some useless things like flashing icons, changed a few settings so chats are in separate windows rather than one multi tabbed window, gotten rid of that extremely nonsensical weather plugin, gotten rid of that weird splash screen plugin, installed the speak plugin and configured it with a custom message, made it so that it reads all incoming chat using SAPI 5.
Note that the speak plugin won't read chat rooms, just single chat sessions.
I decided to have a little fun. When you open the Miranda NG for the first time, it should speak, Robert Kingett is exceedingly handsome.
Have fun! If someone could host this long term, that would be great. When it first loads, you have to add your accounts. Press the alt key, and go down to accounts.
Anyway, have fun. It's portable so if you don't like what I've changed, feel free to change it.
below the link, I'll explain how to change that startup message.
