That uses serial commands and has a whole raft of features (directory creation, file creation and deletion etc etc).
So could I store executable commands on the card, or would it be just storage? I believe at this point I may have to buy more EEPROM. Thanks for all the help despite my numerous questions!

That's what I thought. I just was poking around as to what the investment is for a laptop without a screen, and the prices I found were up in the $3000 range so I had one of those "there's gotta be a better way" moments and thought I'd give it my go. Any ideas on interfacing with SD storage, or even usb flash? I looked in the Playground, and I've got a lot of options. Ideas?

So I had this idea for a laptop for the visually impaired using an arduino and the speakjet chip for audio feedback. Using a PS/2 keyboard as input, the device would perform basic tasks such as word processing and reading text, and possibly a few games. My eventual hope is to power this by a LiPO battery pack and open source it as a project, but right now I'm just analyzing the concept. Anyone have ideas as to how to get this off the ground? Thanks!

Ok, so I just finished reading an article from uc hobby:
http://www.uchobby.com/index.php/2007/11/11/arduino-sound-part-1/
The method I like the most was using a synthesizer chip. Now I have two questions. Is this the best method and what do I do with the chip, basically where does it go on the board?

I like the idea of using the waveshield. Now how can I use a device like a softpot to play a certain "tone"?

Thank you for the idea. But me and my newbie brain can't figure out how this would work.

that's brilliant! but I was looking for something that didn't require a midi device at all. Something with just a female jack that I could plug into any amp.

Hi,
I'm pretty new to the idea of the arduino so please bear with me. I'm a musician and I also enjoy working with electronics, what better to do than to put the two together and create electronic instruments! However, all the instrument projects I've seen only use the arduino as a MIDI controller. Is there anyway to use the arduino to generate sounds without a computer to interface with. I've got some ideas, but I need to make sure they'll work before I continue. Thanks!
