Speech Controlled Quadropod

This is my first post on Instructables and I am super excited to share my knowledge! My original robot post is here: Spryo SpoonTail which is just my robot showing some tricks but with a tethered control. In this Instructable I am going to show you how to make a quadrapod of your own and using speech recognition via bluetooth to control your bot. Gotta thank Oddbot for introducing me to robotics and helping ...

SP0256-AL2 Speech With Arduino

Here's the Arduino version of a project to use the General Instruments (GI) SP0256-AL2 vintage speech synthesis chip to say "hello world". I'd previously shown how to do this with a Basic Stamp 2. Here's what it sounds like saying, "hello world" 20101215_164333.mp3 How it works, in short, is that the GI chip must be given an 8-bit address corresponding to a vocalization.  It sends an audio signal on its dig ...

In those days the only sensible way to generate speech was to offload the task to dedicated hardware because the CPU simply couldn't keep up. The most widely used speech chip t ...
