Dim speaks,speech 
speaks=”Welcome to your PC, username” 
Set speech=CreateObject(“sapi.spvoice”)
speech.Speak speaks

You can replace username with text of your choice that you want hear from your computer.

Now save it as greet.vbs on your desktop.


Copy the file(greet.vbs) to the following path:

For Windows XP:

C:\Documents and settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

For later versions of Windows (Win-7,8,vista):

C:\Users\”username”\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start menu\Programs\Startup

Note: “username” indicates your systems username. And C: must be your system drive. The folder AppData is a hidden folder, so unhide this folder to access it.
