I have one of those Sharp EL 640 units, and when you press the decimal key fast you can make it rap.

I don't remember who on the list was counting words the calculator would
say, perhaps it was something I read on the web site, but I have another
one to add.  If you press the four key and then quickly press the Root
key, the calculator will say Fruit.  Now, go ahead.  Tell me I have way
too much time on my hands.  Actually back then, we all marveled at what
speech could do and did our best to figure out all the quirks.

Wow, I kinda get nostalgic here. I can remember the speech plus. We had a couple of those in school. We used to play with the start/volume button and made the speech plus go haywire emitting strange and, so we thought, funny noices and half words.:) /Krister
