That was all done by the Brightman/Wiggens team out of CBM Texas.  To us it was about address lines, chip selects md the audio, they filled in the actual voice stuff other than we showed them how to do custom glue IC correctly.

We all used to do impressions of what  a TED sounds like when it missed the voice fetch, as we would hear it over and over when things didn't work right (like in the suite at CES waiting for K-Mart to show up in 10 minutes).  I have seen an engineer turn to the local bar-maid at the pub we used to frequent and respond with TED noises... we had to apologize since the waitress didn't speak "TED".

i can imagine that :o) one thing i am curious about: how did you guys create/ compress the voice data back then? it must have been not so trivial and quite computing intense :)
