[Blindapple] read me for talking dos box

It would be possible to emulate every notetaker and synthesizer out there, indeed. But I learned the hard way that it’s not something easy. I trequires *HOURS* of messing with code, hardware which is not usable by blind people whatsoever and a bunch of other steps that I haven’t even looked into. Also, it would require having multiple copies of the unit you want to emulate, as there is a really high chance that you will brick a unit if you try to mess with it’s internals.
The MESS team has been working on emulating the Votrax SC01 and SC02/artic SSI263 synthesis chips, which are used in many products. The SC02 powers prety much every Artic device, as well as the Blazie notetakers, Aicom Accent, Speakout/Sounding Board, APH Pocket Braille and a bunch of others, so that could be a very big step. We would still need someone to grab a copy of the actual synthesizers and somehow extract the firmware in their ROM.
