serial ports

Sadly for Speakup and hardware synthesizers, it is nearly impossible, if not completely so, to find a motherboard with a serial port. I haven't seen such a board in several years, and the serial port is not likely to make a comeback. If you can indeed still find a card with a serial port, it should work with Speakup. Otherwise, about the only option these days is a USB to serial converter, and sadly, Speakup doesn't like these. A side note, Speakup can use eSpeak to provide software speech, so this is an option if you can't find a working serial port solution.
