I'm trying to find a Linux or web-based application that can replicate the retro MacinTalk/PlainTalk sound from the 80s. Specifically, that weird robotic voice you hear from the autopilot in WALL-E (which used MacinTalk's "Ralph" voice). Is there anything Linux can use that would reproduce that sound quality?

Thanks for the help,

EE

this looks intriguing … but what is it?

Cheers,
