Quote from: LambdaMikel on 16:49, 08 May 17Right, thanks for the suggestion! We won't see the status lights of the Emic 2 then, but I guess that's acceptable if it can bring the size (and hence the price!) down considerably. Will try that and check if it reduces the price a bit. Btw, I thought again about the DkTronics / SSA-1 compatibility idea - one other problem is that the Emic 2 always requires start and end byte for the speech, i.e. "S", then the stream of bytes, and then Enter. If I recall Dktronics and SSA-1 correctly, then they only require the allophone byte, and they speak directly as they receive the byte, no buffering (on the hardware level). You might have to poll the port for "ready" signal. Hence, they don't require a start ("S") and end byte (Enter), unlike the Emic 2. That makes it difficult. When is the string "entered"? I could wait for a pause of x milliseconds in the stream of bytes and assume that the string is complete then (-> Enter), and prepare for the next string (-> "S"), but this seems to be an unreliable heuristics. Looks like DkTronics and SSA-1 compatibility is not that easy to achieve, given that the Emic 2 requires a different protocoal and start and end byte I have made providions to the hardware though for chaning the IO port without programming, and supporting 2 different modes (DIP switches), as well a soft reset button in case the thing gets stuck. I'll keep thinking about it though, maybe another idea crops up.
