Member's request
 
An experienced Psion Organiser II user informed me recently that there used to be a 'Speech Synthesiser' that was fitted into a case similar to the paralink. Anyone know the whereabouts of one of these gizmos? I'd be interested to see one in action.
 
Sincerely and in good faith

I knew it existed, and it's been high on my wish list for many years. There was one on eBay several years ago that I was unable to buy (non-uk bids were blocked, and there was not enough time to contact the seller to get him to fix that - I would have paid double what it went for).
 
In Psion News the speech synthesizer is not mentioned, except in passing in an article about medical uses of the Psion II in the US and Canada:

I used to have the Currah speech synthesizer for my Sinclair Spectrum. There is a video of it on youtube:

I expect the Psion synth to be similar technology.
