[DECtalk] Dectalk question

The various flavors of Dectalk 4.6 do not sound like 4.3. 4.63 and 4.64
sound somewhat like 4.3, but not quite.
A text manual is not the only way to learn Dectalk phoneems. Another member
of this listserv, Snoopi Botten, put together an audio tutorial that teaches
everything needed to make Dectalk sing including phoneems. If you are
willing to spend a little money, it's well worth the purchase. You can check
it out here:
He uses DT 4.4, which sounds almost identical to 4.3. Dectalk 101 enabled me
to learn how to make Dectalk sing well. Before I listened to this 12-step
tutorial several years ago, I didn't know what the heck I was doing with DT
phoneems. The lessons helped me get really good with DT singing.

I'm not sure. I wouldn't dare download 4.6. They have 4.3 right there. If
you want voices, parameters and phonemes, you need to download the manual in
a zip file from the (un)official Dectalk website here:
