Think about the original Speak & Spell without a display. A slightly different version was sold in United Kingdom as Speak & Write.
Don't miss the Les Maths Magiques sold in France.
The Speak & Spell project was started in the year 1976 and created with the TMC0280 the first one-chip LPC speech synthesizer. Later refinements to the Speak & Spell chips resulted in the TMS5100, 5200 and 5220 Voice Synthesis Processors (VSP) for use in commercial products needing synthetic speech voice output from digitally-stored words and phrases. Speech data was stored in in up to sixteen 128K ROM chips (TMC0350).
