there are only two usb synthesizers available: the Tripletalk USB at US$450
or thereabouts and the DECTalk usb at US$695. the Tripletalk sounds pretty
much like the Doubletalk does and the DECtalk usb is dectalk speech though
it sounds a little different from the classic dec express.

If you like Eloquence and your objective is only to have jaws speech
separate from the rest of your audio, you might want to consider purchasing
a separate soundcard - usb would be easiest - and configure jaws to use that
particular soundcard. If you do not need to access real mode dos or work in
a console environment in linux a lot, having jfw on a second souncard is
probalby all you need.

This said, I am a firm believer in hardware speech and still using my
11-year-old keynote external. Aside from loving the speech, I find it a bit
more responsive than using eloquence.
