edgy charles

Welcome to the AT&T Natural Voices Text-to-Speech Engine demo! Here you have the opportunity to "test drive" what we believe is the most realistic, human-sounding synthetic speech system available today.

Test driving the voices - in particular taking Charles for a bit of a spin - boynton has to agree with bluejoh whose link carried the warning: Beware the voice of Charles
The rather neutral phrase "boynton likes this link from bluejoh" seemed to spark some unresolved issues for Charles - he fought to restrain emotion and maintain vocal equilibrium. Of course it could have been reflux. Or maybe he was reacting to boynton's driving.

Poor Charles. He is easily confused you know...

He knew how to pronounce "bluejoh" (albeit with great emotion) - a name which seemed to confuse Mike. So he gave it an extra syllable.

Hmm. My infamy has obviously not yet spread to the US if even Mike can't pronounce my name!

Must work on that.
