I was once asked to circuit-bend a Speak & Spell toy, and the person asking for this referred to the toy and its sibling instruments (the Speak & Read and Speak & Math) as "Speaks." I found that amusing, since "speaks" would normally be a third-person singular verb, rather than a plural noun . . . but I digress. speaks is a brief fixed media electroacoustic work made from samples of circuit-bent "Speak" toys from Texas Instruments, and voices contributed by friends.
