Let's talk Turkey

Kedok is using LCD screen for it's settings which is rather ridiculous for a device used by people that can't read it. But I had some issues, like how to deal with large numbers in the menu. TTS (text to speech) was to much for the Arduino CPU. Using a TTS module to expensive.
I asked Bert Wester a blind sport shooter for help. He had a great idea by using a voice recorded MP3 player. This is a very small SD card player. about the same size as the SD card and cheap. We record the speech we need for the settings on the SD card and the CPU board selects them to play. I found a nice MP3 player, DFPlayer made by DFRobot.
Hope we can get rid of the silly LCD screen on Kedok.
