Zen Speaks!

by Aldo Cumani

Science Fiction

About the Story

A demo program that (using an intrepreter that supports sound) adds 1. annoying background "music" using standard sound effects, 2. rudimentary text-to-speech (producing a horrible robot-like voice), 3. a very primitive Eliza-style response system. Talk to Zen, the computer from the Museum of Inform.
WARNING: this code makes use of Z-machine features (sound effects and keyboard interrupts) that, although explicitly specified in the Z-machine Standard Document V1.0, are not commonly used, and it is possible that your interpreter does not implement them correctly (in particular, it may hang). I, the author, take no responsibility for any weird things that could occur to you and your computer as a consequence of running this code.
