Voice Synthesizer For The Color Computer

Classical Computing has introduced Speak Up!, a program for Radio Shack's Color Computer. It is a voice synthesizer, 100% software, and has a small text-to-speech converter. It takes just over 7K of memory, and allows users to access it from BASIC or Extended Color BASIC. With Speak Up!, users can type in words and sentences to be spoken, or add speech statements to BASIC programs to make them talk.

The program is available on cassette, with both the 16K and the 32K versions on either side. The documentation includes instructions, a sample calling program in BASIC, and the text to speech rules.

Speak Up! is the first product offered by Classical Computing. The price is $29.95.
