            Subject: voice text and birthdays


    I recently had the occasion to wonder if any persons have been
    exprimenting with phonetic transcription and voice synthesis software. I
    found a posting in the Humanist archive dating back to 1990. This positng
    (3.1170) follows one (3.2269) whose subject line announces the death and
    rebirth of Humanist and precedes another (3.1171) about Nexis and Lexis,
    commerical databases devoted to the productions of journalism and of legal
    studies respectively. Interesting juncture.

    If you are interested in poetry and in computers and generally in reading,
    you may be interested in a record of the context in which the
    question arose:


    Consider it a token of a Happy Birthday wish.
