quoth John K Clark (whitespace trimmed):
: Speech to text programs have gotten a lot better in the last few years
: but text to speech programs have not, they sound as bad as they did
: 5 years ago.

Or twenty years ago, when Dad was experimenting with a Votrax
that sounded exactly like Stephen Hawking sounds now.

To be fair - rumor says that Apple offered Hawking a new computer
with a better voice, and he turned it down, saying, "It doesn't
sound like me."
