Phone tag

Do you have OnStar? It can read email, you know. That got me thinking...

My computer has a modem and so can act as an answering machine. Thanks to Microsoft, said PC also has a voice recognition API. So, it can record a message and convert it to text, text that can be emailed and read aloud by OnStar.

Something is lost in the translation, and I become bored.

Free language translation services abound on the 'net. So now OnStar reads french, poorly. :)

Yes, I have a job.

No, voice technology isn't practical. Not yet.
