As the TNS isn't available to buy as a new device I would say
that a fair asking price might be a few hundred dollars. I
honestly wouldn't pay more than $300 for it but that's just me and
what I feel that it's worth. Others may disagree. I believe that
its original price was $1395. I really loved its keyboard.

Mike, here’s what I know about the TNS...now remember
however that the last time I used one was about 1995.
it has it’s own speaker. there is a headphone jack that
was 3.5 mm at that time.
you can adjust the tone etc. as far as the synthesizer
goes but at that time it took some getting used to.
It is a very basic and very simple machine that I loved
and it helped me get several degrees.
just out of curiosity what does one run for nowadays?

Subject: [TechTalk] Type N Speak Info Needed
I don't know much of anything about the Type N Speaks,
other than you can save notes, documents address books...
I'm looking into purchasing 1 for an elderly lady that
could use something like this for her personal files and
such. Can anyone answer the following questions please?
Does the Type N Speak have its own speakers, or will
speakers need to be provided as well? And do the speakers
use a, 3.5 MM, plug / port if necessary?
What speech synthesizer does it use? Also, Can the
synthesizer settings be tweaked much like JAWS & NVDA?
All input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks much.
Take care. Mike. Sent from my iBarstool.
