The Sanyo VSS-100 is a speech synthesizer released in 1984. Official name is 'Voice Synthesizer".

It was created in Japan by the Language Engineering Research Institute (言語工学研究所) and used in several schools for visually impaired people.

It uses

  • the screen reading VDM98K software, developed by Techno Mate
  • the N88-BASIC of the NEC computers (PC-8800 series and PC-9800 series), that can be easily adapted

It could be connected to most personal computers, including MSX machines. However, the produced voice was very hard-to-listen. This model used monosyllabic parameters and was replaced by the better VSS-300.
