wanted: Votrax PSS manual

For what it's worth there is a manual for the Votrax Type N Talk at the URL below, I believe they used the same speech chip (SC-01). Crap, I had a Votrax PSS about 4 years ago and sold it for pennies on the dollar!

There is also a neat piece of DOS software to read the screen through a PSS at: http://park.org/Guests/Trace/pavilion/dosshar1.htm

Sorry, that's all I can come up with.

I recently obtained a Votrax Personal Speech System which unfortunately for
me, did not include the power supply or the manual.
Thanks to Robert Stek's informative post
(http://www.classiccmp.org/pipermail/cctech/2003-February/010608.html) on
this list in Feb '03, I am in the process of constructing a power supply for
(i.e. I eBayed a 28VAC transformer and am using an 18.5VDC laptop power
supply instead of 20VDC which HOPEFULLY won't hurt anything, until I find a
satisfactory 20VDC power supply, and am cannibalizing a DIN-5 connector from
a dead keyboard)

However, I still lack a copy of the PSS's manual, so I can't figure out how
to set the various device modes, to control the AY-3-8910 audio generator
chip, etc.
If anyone here has the manual for the Votrax Personal Speech System and has
some means to scan or digitize it (a digital camera will work) can they post
or send me a copy of the images? It would be very much appreciated.
