Want to use Artisan's advanced features to help make profiling easier? We have an article, "Speaking Alarms for Windows," documenting how to use the "Alarms" feature in Artisan to get the computer to talk to you. Using a free text-to-speech program, the computer gives prompts as to when to adjust the heat and fan speed. The article includes links to files that will make it very easy to get started. And, of course, step-by-step instructions on how to do it all!
