In 1987, 3 french guys publish a Sofware Synthesis for MSX with Music Module (H.Frere, F.Hartard and P.Auffret).
With a small modification this sofware can used with a covox module.
The embeded covox module in the Repro-Factory 's SD-Drive cartridge is perfext for that

Check the example Video

This program can be used from Basic.
With a little more work, by changind default sounds, it can speak more easily any language...

Program is available on the product page (by Downloading). ASM source code of the player is provide.

(Thank to Jipe for recovered this program, and I_oliveira for the idea of changing the output port)

Can you put the original (music module) version online? I used to have it but can't find it. I remember though it was made for French speech I got it to sound dutch (with using 'wrong' spelling for Dutch words).

Maybe a bit late, but there is also a "Dutch" version of this program, which converts the entered sentences to match the French samples. https://download.file-hunter.com/Programs/SynparNL.zip
