Hi. Their are several versions of dectalk. The pc internal is the only one which requires software.

	Then you might not want a Dectalk, which takes it's own software
just to get it to work with Linux.  You'd probably have better results
with a Doubletalk synthesizer which is supported by both Speakup (well,
currently anyway) and the Jupiter screen readers.  HTH,
