I happened across an interesting Kickstarter project, BIG BUDDY TALKER , an inexpensive way to add natural sounding speech to your next project. It features more than 1000 sounds (visit the Kickstarter to see the current list of words) that can be played back either one word at a time or strung together to form phrases. The board is very easy to interface with any processor that supports SPI.
BIG BUDDY follows on the success of the LITTLE BUDDY TALKER which has 254 words. Check out the Kickstarter, which runs for a few more days. I have a number of projects in the works that could benefit from this board and I will be sharing them on this blog over the next few months.
Here is a demo of the LITTLE BUDDY TALKER. The BIG BUDDY TALKER will have four times the number of words.
