Depends a lot on what he means by "quality speech". For most applications
the ISD is very very acceptable. Better than AM radio or telephone quality.
If you want "FM radio" quality the ISD does not have adequate bandwidth.

I make disability communication devices with older ISD chips (2590) running
at the "middle" speech quality and many people have commented on the good
quality of the speech compared to other products in this market.
