<nettime> Speech synthesis

If your computer is equipped with sound, I recommend a
visit to the latest iteration of the AT&T Bell Labs
TTS project, text-to-speech synthesis that just got an
upgrade in creepiness:

They claim they will be able to replicate any voice.
The pacing is still ridiculous, but the inflections
are wonderfully hyperreal. The guy kind of sounds like
the actor from Army of Darkness.
