The typist must be skilled in phonetics, which comprises 40 sounds and their symbol representations as shown on the keyboard 11. The sounds comprising a word are typed, setting relays addressing a 40-word phonic memory 12 in appropriate sequence.

Talking Typewriter

A typewriter 10 is arranged to have a phonemic keyboard 11 and type. The major users of such a system would be persons with severe speech problems who would thus be able to type-talk. The typist must be skilled in phonetics, which comprises 40 sounds and their symbol representations as shown on the keyboard 11. The sounds comprising a word are typed, setting relays addressing a 40-word phonic memory 12 in appropriate sequence.

After all phonetic sounds in the word have been addressed in sequence, actuation of the space bar 13 initiates operation of the readout device 14 in the address sequence to supply the typed sounds to the voice output 15.
