Very cool implementation but….God that’s annoying! It sounds like someone strangling a linguist.
Sounds a bit like the turrets/GladOS.
“Lingwo IS dead.”

I think it was probably Arthur C, Clark
who wrote a story about the 10,000 names
of God. A technician had just completed
installing a massive computer in a Tibetan
lamasary. The head lama told him the computer
would randomly type out the names of God
and when the number eached 10,000 the world
As the technician is riding away from the
lamasary he notices that the stars are going
out, one by one.

I want this as an app for my iphone.
I’ll be the most unpopular person at work within a day.
Sounds more like a didgeridoo.
#10 stole my line.
sounds like a broken Speak N’ Spell
