Mankind is basically a battlefield... a dark cellar in which a well-bred spinster lady and a sex crazed monkey are forever engaged in mortal combat, the struggle being refereed by a rather nervous bank clerk. -- D. Bannister
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.
