I know for an absolute fact that in late November of last year RC was still
selling some Apple cards. I got a Doubletalk for Christmas.
Unfortunately I can't help you with Appleworks as I never used that. If you
do have a Doubletalk, it should also be able to emulate the popular Echo
speech synthesizer developed by Street Electronics. The Echo uses software
called Textalker as its driver. If you'd like a copy to test out, and can
handle disk images, let me know and I can point you at a disk image.
Actually, any of the "talking" disks at http://jaybird.no-ip.info/disks have
Textalker already on them, so can be used to test Echo functionality.
