AT&T Attempts To Muscle In On Bell Labs

Down with the Fucking Man, d00d.

Stumbling on the heels of Bell Labs, AT&T is now trying their hands at cutting edge text- to-voice. Too bad it sucks.

Regular readers of Pigdog will recall Negative Nancy's article on Bell Labís web site, which featured text-to-speech technology. Not to be outdone, AT&T has introduced their version of Bellís web site.

However, unlike Bellís, AT&Tís only features two voices, it will read the letters if it can't understand the words, and you can only use it a certain number of times per day.

On the bright side, you can type in and hear as many obscene words as you want.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
