Give your project a voice, and more than just pre-recorded messages on loop! The EMIC 2 takes a serial string and turns it into synthesized voice.


Description [Hide]

The Emic 2 Text-to-Speech Module from Grand Idea Studio and Parallax fills a niche to make it simple to convert a string of text to audible voice text. It still sounds synthesized, by hey, who's going to believe you wedged a tiny person into your Arduinobot?

It also features a pretty comprehensive command interface to tweak how you want it to behave.

Features:

  • High-quality speech synthesis for English and Spanish languages
  • Nine predefined voice styles comprising male, female, and child
  • Dynamic control of speech and voice characteristics, including pitch, speaking rate, and word emphasis
  • Industry-standard DECtalk text-to-speech synthesizer engine (5.0.E1)

Application Ideas:

  • Reading Internet-based data streams (such as e-mails or Twitter feeds)
  • Conveying status or sensor results from robots, scientific equipment, or industrial machinery
  • Language learning or speech aids for educational environments

Specifications:

  • Single row, 6-pin, 0.1" header for easy connection to a host system
  • Power requirements: +5 VDC, 30 mA idle, 46-220 mA active (depending on speech parameters and output load)
  • Communication: Asynchronous 9600 bps serial (8N1)
  • Dimensions: 1.25" W x 1.5" L x 0.37" H (3.17 W x 3.81 L x 0.94 H cm)
  • Operating temperature: -20 to +70 °C (-4 to +158 °F)

Adafruit 8-channel Bi-directional Level Converter - TXB0108

Because the Arduino (and Basic Stamp) are 5V devices, and most modern sensors, displays, flash cards and modes are 3.3V-only, many makers find that they need to perform level shifting/conversion to protect the 3.3V device from 5V.
