I first heard speech synthesis with a Votrax unit attached to a PLATO
system at UDel in 1978. The PLATO folks there were pretty arrogant
and obviously had a bigger budget than we did with their comfy chairs,
fancy rooms (with AIR CONDITIONING!), Votrax units and PLATO graphics
terminals while we had LA-36s and wiggy Beehives at 300 baud. We were
the underdogs :-).
