I don't know--the CT was a strange board. I do recall at one point
having a Votrax Type'n'Talk RS-232 text-to-speech box installed on a
terminal. To this day, I still say "ok" (rhymes with "sock")... ;)
Same here; one of the Cromemcos had a Votrax on a dedicated port
that announced the user's name and port no. when he/she logged in,
and for many years I've had a PC set up with an RS-232 speech card
that announces the caller's name and number when my phone rings,
as well as logging the call.
