Talking watches use a chip.
That is one example of a small device that cannot run an OS, of course, I'm not talking about smart watches, just the standard watch.
And, things set up without an OS will have much greater battery life.

Well, remember that even flip phones can run Android, so I am not sure how
small you are referring to.
I have a firestick that is about the size of a USB WIFI dongle, and it's
running Android, and if it were designed to, it could run software TTS.

Glenn, I/we are talking small devices, not computers nor anything using an
OS...

I seriously doubt anyone uses embedded speech chips unless it is something
too small to run an OS.
Otherwise, it typically uses software TTS via Android or Linux.

I don't know the names but they are around. Just look at any smart
TV like Samsung. Or The Amazon Fire stick, Roku and Apple TV's. They
must use embedded TTS chips.

Question regarding tts type engines... Are these or do you know of
any that are able to be embedded into products being designed?

Thank you,

The Access 32 is a 32bit software version of DeckTalk. The link I
gave proposed to have it. I am happy wi9th my synth or I would look
into it further.

Chris, be sure to avoid Dectalk USB, which purports to sound like
Dectalk Express but which, sadly, doesn’t.
