It is debatable which computer company had speech synthesis first. I 
remember Macintalk, but I also remember having a 5.25" floppy diskette for 
my commodore 64 that had speech syntheses very similar to Macintalk. That 
was in 1983 (predating the first Macintosh). Here is an interesting 
article that mentions some of commodores pioneering technologies.
