The classic icon for the Amiga “Say”, speech-synthsis program.

The Amiga was one of the first computers to include built-in speech synthesis. Packaged with the Workbench OS was a program called “Say“, which was little more than a simple CLI/Shell’ish box that allowed the user to enter text, which the Amiga would then ‘speak’. It reminded me of the program “S.A.M. – Software Automated Mouth” that I had for the 8-bit Atari’s, but with better output.

The icon for Amiga “Say” was great, a comic-strip speech ‘balloon’ with “@?*!”. Very Q-Bert’esque.
