The 'Text and Speech' toggle doesn't actually know, exactly which 
options are available in each game.

This can cause problems, for example in the AGOS engine:
Simon the Sorcerer 1 (English CD or German CD), there aren't usable 
subtitles available.
Simon the Sorcerer 1 (Multi-Language CD), will trigger timing issues, if 
the speech is disabled.

Additional code could be added to query the game engine, for the 'Text 
and Speech' toggle options available in the current game. Or the 'Text 
and Speech' toggle could be made optional for each game or each game engine.

The current 'Subtitle Speed' slider isn't useful for all game engines 
either, and might be best made optional. As different games, offer 
difference ranges for subtitle speed, and not all games (ie Simon the 
Sorcerer 1/2) offer a specific variable for the speed of the subtitles.
