Hello all, In early 2016 I was discussing various ways to use the TI Speech Synthesizer. My goal was to (eventually) be able to convert a .WAV file into a format that could be read by the TMS5220. (Like QBOX, but with less hassle). Lots of discussion on SPEECODER, STANAGs, and SOX. The thread is at https://atariage.com/forums/topic/251554-speecoder-on-win994a/ Not too long after that, I picked up another part-time job, and ended up writing three (non-computer related) journal/magazine articles, taking up much of my time and brainspace. TI speech, unfortunately, got shunted off to a siding. Now that things have quieted down a bit, I'm revisiting my investigation into the speech synthesizer. One project, if anyone hasn't beat me to it yet, is to extract speech data from TI's text to speech programs ("SPEAK", "XLAT", etc), and save it to a file. (Note that the input expected by "CALL SAY" is different than the output of XLAT--CALL SAY wants TI-LPC data, XLAT produces a coded phoneme string.) There will be other studies in LPC formats, bit manipulation, phonemes, formants, and I may even tackle the math that generates the reflection coefficients. But for now, enjoy this Extended Basic program that makes the TI sing! (feel free to scroll ahead to about 1:30 to hear the actual singing...) Let me know what you think. twinkle2.mp4
