Ok now if they could only update the voice that gets used... I can't believe they use they same text to speech voice that Soundblaster 1.0 came with.

Anybody remember Dr. Sbaitso? :)

A FREE service very similar to this program is available @

You can pick different characters like Kermit the frog or Benny Hill or George W... there's a whole bunch of them.

I'm not sure if they still show it anywhere on a weekly basis here in the US, but they sell the Hell out of it on infomercials. The Best of Benny Hill Volumes 1 through whatever for $19.95. I remember watching that show on a local station back in the 70's or early 80's. It came on Friday nights at 11:30pm and at the time, it was very risque for American TV. In 2002, it looks almost ancient. It's still kind a funny though IMO.

For everyone's edification:

In Insex.com's videos (Insex is VERY NSFW BTW) they have these submissives in the video field being bound and tortured and such, and in the background they have this program (or what sounds like the voice in this program) reading their email...all these corresponding little hotty ho's from all about the country are talking about how they wanna get tied up and beaten, ect, and the computerized voice reading out their fantasies and desires while the ho in the foreground is getting jiggy with the electrotorture and whatnot.

Anyway...the whole point is, the voice is realllly creepy when put in concert with the pain and suffering.

This has actually been around for a while-- it's based on Microsoft's Agent technology...a variation of the same driving force behind the annoying paperclip character in MS Office.

Yes, you can change the voices by downloading different speech engines. I have a ton of voices on mine!
Check out www.msagentring.org for lots of free characters, entertaining applications, and so forth.

BTW, Microsoft designed this to be used on the Web.
Voice recognition & Text-to-speech on the Web, you say? Yep.
