This is the right place to discuss on how to implement hardware vsync, adding a VIA or AY chipset, puting multiple roms, or how to design a new flash expansion card.

I think that there is no power enought on the printer port and IJK-PASE interfaces are not compatible.

There was two native Oric speech synthesizers, a british one based on a the standard SPO-256, and a French one from CMPI which spoke more "french", which I did record some time ago: http://www.defence-force.org/download/c ... a_lune.mp3

The main problem was that it used the same address range as the Microdisc :p
