Your friend's system (the sound chip and/or driver for the sound chip) does not allow multiple WaveOut audio streams. This means that EverQuest is taking over the audio and the text-to-speech will not work.

If I remember correctly, this is only an issue on Windows 95/98/Me. Your friend can solve this problem one of two ways:
1. Purchase a new sound card, one that isn't el cheapo loco. Any Sound Blaster Live or Audigy will do, and the older models (Live, Audigy 1 at least) can be had just as cheap as the no-name sound cards, and will do everything necessary.
2. Upgrade to Windows XP, which should perform sound mixing. If they already have Windows XP, revert to solution #1
