You'll note that his definition of "computer" didn't include S-100 systems
(probably because they don't have integral video...). But if we have
to talk about the "best" speech synthesizer of the day, I'd vote for the
original DECtalk (often confused with a VT240 base!) These are still in
continuing commercial use at the far end of those applications where you
dial in to check your bank balance, etc.
