I remember it.  in general it could only spell words so you had to listen to
them letter by letter.  The break through came with synthesisers such as
mimic, brade, etc. which were external synthesisers which only needed to be
fed with text and a few basic codes used to change pitch, inflection etc.

The BBC Micro had a screen reader of a sort - as I remember, you gave it
a text file and the Beeb read it to you.  The voice used was newsreader
Kenneth Kendall.
