This command is not in SmileBasic V1.


In the Japanese release of SmileBasic V2, TALK takes between one and nine string parameters (inclusive). The system 'speaks' the string(s) (one after another) on an audio channel using a speech synthesizer. In the North American release, the command does nothing.

See also TALKSTOP (Command) and TALKCHK (Function).


TALK "text to be spoken"
In Version 3, TALK only takes one parameter: the text to be spoken. Many of the intonation features have been removed.
