Allophone-generator

  
The circuit, a general-purpose system with many uses, vocalizes 59 allophones contained in the speech processor. After filtering and amplification, its pulse-code-modulated output can drive an 8-!l speaker. The processor`s address pins, Al to A6, define 64 speech-entry points. Closing the test switch to the NAND gate lowers its output, thereby loading an address and triggering the ALD input for an allophone cycle.

The CD4520 dual binary counter, IC2, counts from 0 to 63 in binary code until its Q7 output resets it on the number 64 count. To generate a phrase, just add an EPROM between IC2 and IC3 that contains a program for a predetermined sequence of allophones.
