DISCONTINUED. (Verified 08/96) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. Accent-XE is a speech synthesis board that plugs directly into the modem slot of the Toshiba T1000/SE/XE/LE laptop computers. The Accent text processor can produce speech in two modes: text mode, which converts text to ordinary speech, using preprogrammed grammatical and other rules, and spell mode, which speaks all text and punctuation character by character. Other features include: a standard text processor with a preprogrammed vocabulary of more than 20,000 words; an adjustable speech rate of approximately 60 to 850 words per minute; use of CTRL-X to instantly empty the speech buffer; and a Downloadable Custom Dictionary (DCD) to create dictionaries of roughly 500 words of up to 10 characters each. A utility program, SETMINI.EXE (included), permits system parameters and configurations to be changed. The Accent-XE has two 3.5 mm phone jacks: one is mono for use with an external speaker, and the other is stereo for use with headphones. A screen review software program must be purchased separately to operate Accent-XE; contact manufacturer for details about compatible programs. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Toshiba laptop computers.
