So, looks like the Covox Speech Thing came out in 1986. Am I right to guess that it was originally intended as an audio output device for speech synthesis, especially as an adaptive device for blind users? Because PCM audio wasn’t yet much of a thing on computers. Has anyone seen any of the original packaging, ad copy or software from the mid 80s? What were they originally used for?
I ask partly out of curiosity, and partly because I have a 7.16 MHz Tandy laptop that came out around the same time and I’m curious to mess around with the vintage Covox software on my Covox clones.
