ok here is the links you need.

talking dosbox:


lotus 123


mega dots demo


wordperfect for dos


and virtual braille n speak so you can modify it.


you may also need python and its tools to be installed. I tried 
modifying it but got a syntax error. though I admit I'm not good at 
coding. but I can modify espeak and giv it new intonations at least.

I will keep updating it and probably this weekend I’ll release it. I can attempt to have a DECtalk output mode, although it would have to use the Access32 version used with NVDA. I hope that’s not a problem for you.
