commercial talk synth

A speech synthesizer with first-wave distribution in February 1983, with full distribution the following March. DECtalk were standalone units a little larger than a cat which were able to connect to many devices as well as a telephone line. Though it was intended for use as a talk synth, it was possible to make DECtalk sing using its tone indicator. (source)
