I would prefer a hardware synth that would plug into an internal slot in a 
laptop, in order to maintain maximum portability. I have not yet found an 
internal speech synthesizer for laptops. If such hardware is not available, 
then I will use my Doubletalk LT, which plugs into an RS-232 serial 
connection, and has its own battery.

The manufacturer of the Doubletalk LT (RC Systems also makes 
the Tripletalk speech synthesizer, which might be a good choice for you, 
since it connects to a laptop via a USB connection, and would not need its 
own battery.

What other considerations are there with an external synthesizer?  I am
looking at up-dating my laptop and would love to know if I should be going
with an external synth or at least if I should plan on the option when I am
not portable to use a quicker solution.
