Discontinued products manufactured by Covox Inc (listed alphabetically)
SPEECH CONSTRUCTION SET
--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 10/94) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- Speech Construction Set is a program for converting characteristics of speech into graphic patterns on the computer screen, and editing them. The program uses (and requires) the Voice Master voice digitizing system (also from Covox). Characteristics that can be presented in graph form include: pitch, amplitude, and unvoiced sound. The user can edit these characteristics to alter or improve a sound that has been digitally recorded using the Voice Master system. When the utterance is played back, the alterations can be heard. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple II, Commodore 128, and Commodore 64 computers.
--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 10/94) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- Speech Thing is a digital-to-analog speech synthesizer. The hardware component attaches in-line to the parallel printer port and does not interfere with printer operation. The software consists of a talking calculator, a talking blackjack game, a music sampler keyboard, a graphics-based sound editor, a special effects control panel, and prerecorded sounds for inclusion in user-written programs. Also included is a copy of SmoothTalker from First Byte (see entry). SmoothTalker is available either in Version 2, which occupies 80K and operates on any PC compatible, or Version 3, which occupies 170K and requires an 80286-based AT compatible computer. Speech Thing comes with speaker with headphone jack, power cable, software, and manual. Speech for the Speech Thing is recorded using Covox's Voice Master Key System ( extra; see entry). Speech Thing hardware and components are available separately; contact manufacturer for details. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM PS/2, IBM PC or compatible computers. DIMENSIONS: Speaker measures 2 x 3 inches. WEIGHT: 2 pounds.
VOICE MASTER JR
--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 10/94) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- Voice Master Jr. is a smaller, less complex version of Voice Master ( see entry) which works as a speech digitizer and thirty-two word voice recognition system. Like the Voice Master, the Jr. allows the user to create, edit, and play back digital sound patterns and words. A version of the "Voice Harp" music composing program that will only accept whistling as input is included. A headset microphone may be purchased as an option. COMPATIBILITY: For use on Apple II+, Apple IIc, Apple IIe, Commodore 128, Commodore 64, and Atari (some or all models) computers.
VOICE MASTER KEY SYSTEM AND KEY SYSTEM II
--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 10/94) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- Voice Master Key System and Key System II (formerly Voice Master-T) are hardware/software systems that allows speech recognition to be added to most DOS-compatible software, or sound files to be added to programs written in BASIC, C, or assembly language. The user uses the speech recognition feature to vocally "train" the system to recognize up to 1, 024 words. Each trained word has a corresponding voice-activated macro. Both words and macros are user defined. The sound file feature includes two record and edit programs and data compression utilities. Sound files can be incorporated into the voice recognition program so that a verbal response can accompany the voiced command. All sounds the user intends to play back must first be digitally recorded (digitized) before they can be played back. Memory requirements are 48K of RAM, or 6K of RAM if using extended memory. Voice Master Key System ($189.95) uses a 6" x 4" plug-in card that fits inside the computer. Voice Master Key System II ($239.95) uses a 6" x 5" x 3" external controller box. Both systems come with headset/microphone, software, and user manual; Key System II also includes printer cable and AC adapter. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM PS/2 and IBM PC or compatible computers.
