oh I remember the expense of the little things, but as I said it was well worth it for me. I wore that poor thing out. the keyboard was great and I took many a class note on it.
sure brings back memories.

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 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?

Hi All,
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.
