Disney Sound Source

Hardware entity

An improved and not exactly compatible clone of the Covox Speech Thing packaged with an external speaker.


The first video game about Disney Sound Source was released on September 1990.

Sierra On-Line, Brøderbund and Activision has published most of these games

This was an improved clone of the Covox Speech thing but not directly compatible for many games.

The DSS used a telephone jack that plugged into a battery powered external amplified speaker with volume control. The speaker case had a hidden mickey the dongle had an obvious one. This case had a earphone jack for using other devices with speakers.

Disney also sold an adapter so the sound source could be used on Tandy computers that did not have a parallel port.
