speaking as a former TTS professional, that is terrifying.

and i think i recognize this text from an email thread i was in. :)

my contribution to the "weather" conversation wasn't that much fun, though, since TTS re: "expired security certs" is even creepier.

what TTS engine is that?
drshorn: BSPCdrshorn on March 1st, 2007 01:09 am (UTC)
TTS provided by OS X, voices Boing (iShorn) and Good News (iLiam).

And boy are these easier to edit! :)
