With the new USIfAC (and a TTL to RS232 converter) the CPC should be able to do this too. But using a NC100 ist just cool!  8)
http://futureos.de --> Get the revolutionary FutureOS (Recent update: 2019.01.14)
http://futureos.cpc-live.com/files/LambdaSpeak_RSX_by_TFM.zip --> Get the RSX-ROM for LambdaSpeak :-) (Ver.: 2018.08.15)

Well, in case for the CPC, maybe people should just get a LambdaSpeak 3 instead of a DECtalk DTC01 - they are kind of difficult to get these days, and LambdaSpeak has DECtalk version 5 instead of version 2  :)
I must say that I am struggeling with the NC100 keyboard though... it is kind of rubbery and stiff. Touch typing is not easy with it and requires too much force IMHO.

Lovely :D


Also, the vid reminded me how great the keyboard on the NC100 is, for such a small machine...
