Re: Currah µSpeech support in emulators?

InkSpector 2 supports the µSpeech. It also has support for a similar device, the Fuller Orator, which is apparently more convenient to use in software (it doesn't seem to require a buffer). That's a great find, thanks! By the way, you can still run Windows 3.1 programs in 64-bit Windows. See here: ...

Currah µSpeech support in emulators?

I've been wanting to do some messing around with the Currah µSpeech unit for some time. I have a real unit for testing, but obviously there's not much point writing software for it if there are no emulators that actually support it.

Where can I download this game from? The download on here only has the Firing Demo TAP:

That's because that demo is the latest public release. The game hasn't been finished yet.

Re: Black squares...

Thanks Prosm! Does that also include key command words and punctuation? In 128K mode, the only key positions you'll have to remember are for the punctuation marks. Everything else is typed out letter by letter, including key command words. You may also want to consider trying out the "Keyboard Help...

Re: Black squares...

BTW is there a command to make the keyboard window in Fuse get bigger somehow? I have to use a magnifying glass to read it. If you're talking about the "Keyboard Helper" window, then I'm afraid not - that's the biggest it gets. If you are having trouble with the keyword entry system, you might want...
