    I am speechless and I can't find the words to describe this new Talking Fields demo.

    This is quite amazing.  Do you have other voices available?  

    I have an app which receives a text and then calculates the status of an order and sends a text back to the Installer who is on the way to picks up goods.  The nature of this Industry (Floor Covering Distribution) is that 99% of the Drivers / Installers are male and 90% of the Customer Service reps are female.  It would be great to have a link to have the message read back to the driver as it would be less distracting to them while driving if the response could be read back.  Do you have a female customer service voice available?  That is what they are used to.

    But regardless of the voice, it's a great add on.

    More capabilities are listed here:

    Speech Synthesis API

    I was just playing around. Every day I write a few of these 3Q&S formulas just for practice and seeing what issues I run into and how to solve them. I have a truckload of examples.

    There are other voices and languages supported. You can get it to work on Safari with iPads. The original code had some jQuery which created an error on (mobile because it is not loaded) so I removed it. The behavior of the feature is in the process of being changed by various vendors because it was abused in the wild so the user has to take some action to permit the starting of the voice synthesis.

    This was just an exploratory effort so I am not going to pursue it further. However, if anyone needs this capability they can contact me off-world using the information in my profile:
