Too slow for what and what were you using for a synthesizer?  If you
were using computer intensive voices as opposed to something like
Eloquence or E-speak, the machine may have been unresponsive to the
point of annoyance. If you were using Eloquence or E-speak, it may
not have been.  I’m not saying anything about the machine; I have no
opinion of it.  But I think that if people make such comments, they
should state what they used the machine for and what synthesizer
they were using with which screen-reader.
