Voice Messenger Speech 64 - Synthesizer for the Commodore 64

 

Currah Technology of Boston, Massachusetts, produced the "Voice Messenger Speech 64" speech synthesizer for the Commodore 64. It came with a plug-in speech unit and software. Using the "SAY" command, you could have the computer say each key as pressed, or read whole sentences. Two different voices were available. This also worked on the Commodore SX-64 Portable Computer. Not bad for a piece of 1984 technology.
