Thanks for your messages. Let answer the questions that were asked.
->"First tell us what university you're studying at." I am doing my masters at IIT-M, India. I have just started and that is why my ignorance is evident.
->"For your masters degree you should be able to do some basic internet research." Yes, I did that and am doing that only :-) But the problem is my little knowledge makes my search very broad mostly ending in information that I cannot sort out. That is why I turned up here with that question. Please forgive me.
->"Incomplete requirements specified." As I said earlier I am trying to find out how to put up a speech interface on certain devices. I am looking at mobile phones, information points on cars, homes, devices for challenged people or may be any device where text to speech may be relevant. I make a classification of these devices as
1)Isolated Embedded Devices - those which are stand alone
2)Connected Embedded Devices - those which are connected to a computer network.
3)Connected + Graphics Embedded Devices - those that are connected and have a visual interface
4)Multimedia Support available Embedded Devices.
I am totally unfamilar with these devices. My question was how much of total onboard memory and off chip memory etc do you typical see on these devices. Of this how much is used as the RAM or the ROM?
Please dont misinterpret me as trying to go on the fast track. I am just trying to get some pointers and numbers so that I can think of how much size my program could have on the average so that it runs on many of these machines.
Please forgive if I still making too much noise only. Expecting a reply Warm Regards :-) Johnsy
