Robotic sounding ,,, but speaks in Spanish! December 27, 2012
Reviewer: Sam Stone from Waban, MA United States  
This is simply...but does sound like the old Steven Hawking.

It is similar to the Text to Speech Hardware here, but less expensive http://www.textspeak.com/oemtts.htm

The TextSpeak EM however expensive, sounds like a person!
