Internal Speaker Driver for Windows 3.1 and Multimedia Windows

SPEAKR.DRV is a Windows WAVE driver. It requires either:
1) Windows 3.1 or
2) Windows 3.0 with Multimedia Extensions.

Like the Microsoft speaker driver, this Internal Speaker driver
plays exclusively, so Windows will not run programs or respond to
the user while sounds are playing. Unlike the Microsoft driver,
interrupts are not disabled, so you don't have to worry about
losing COMM port data or network connections. Even though it
sounds OK with the interrupts enabled, if you do anything that
causes a lot of interrupts (such as moving the mouse) the sound
quality will suffer.
