    First of all, I'm new to this electronics stuff so take it easy on me.
    In a magazine, I saw this talking watch. When ya press a button, it
    speaks the time and date. What is this type of technology called, and
    how would I begin studying it? I understand digital logic, binary
    numbers, some data structures, and I'm picking up some physics and a
    few puter languages. I'm attempting to learn an assembly language.
    Other than this specific technology, can anyone recommend how and
    where to begin applying my knowledge to electronics projects? Are kits
    worth the time? I'm simply wanting to learn the basics and from there
    pursue my interests. Thanks to all.

    Thanks bro. I appreciate the knowledge. I'm getting ready to check
    into chiprecorder. Take er easy.

    there are a number of technologies involved in such a device.

    microcontroller, digitised (or synthesised) voice, audio amplifier,
    loudspeaker, pushbutton, battery

    I understand digital logic, binary
    kits teach how to recover from assembly mistakes.

    when you design something yourself and build it and it doesn't work
    then comes the conundrum is the design at fault or the execution.
    I think doing a few kits is a good idea. then build a few things from

    Thanks Jasen. Can you recommend any specific microcontroller kits?
    I've heard of PIC microcontrollers and a several other types. I've
    seen some cheaper microcontroller kits that include a board and other
    accessories such as P-Basic software, Basic STAMP, Jav Stamp, and a
    few other languages. I'm wanting a learning kit that comes with
    software and all I'll need to learn the basics. I'm not sure what
    language would be suited for a beginner. I prefer something that I can
    easily obtain a hard copy of literature suited for a beginner. I have
    no clue where I should start. Glancing through "Nuts and Volts"
    magazine, I've seen eight or so different languages and bookoo
    different types of microcontrollers. Any ideas where I should start?
