: It's been 20 years since I dug it out, but I'm now trying to get the SS to speak! It speaks with games, but not on its own. I don't remember -- does it need a special cartridge to speak (i.e. call say "david").
Yes, you need a special cartridge. Either TI Extended Basic or the Speech Editor will give you access to the built-in vocabulary.
Terminal Emulator II will give you access to an unlimited vocabulary.
With the first two, you'd use CALL SAY("HELLO") or some such.
PRINT #1:"HELLO, DAVID"
REM CHANGE TO "WHISPER"
PRINT #1:"//0 0"
PRINT #1:"WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?"
REM DEFAULT VOICE
PRINT #1:"//43 128"
Grab a TE-II manual somewhere...
