SAM - Software Automated Mouth




Audio transcript: Hello. My name is SAM.
I am a Speech Synthesizer on a disk.
I can talk with no expression.
Or, I can really stress certain words.
Sometimes I talk in a hi voice.
But, other times I talk very low.
I can talk very quickly if you want.
Or I can slow things down.
You see, I can do whatever you want me to.
So, I will tell you a little story.
Once upon a time, there were many people who owned personal computers.
They liked to use their machines for many things.
But they were not very happy.
You see, their computer couldn't talk.
So one day a brand new program reached the market.
It was a speech synthesizer.
It had too problems. It cost too much money.
And all the words were spoken in the same tone.

Nobody was very happy still.
But then alone came Don't Ask Software with a brand new program: S.A.M.
Now, talk was finally cheap and every everyone could afford a speech synthesizer.
So, everyone will live happily ever after.
The end.
You can own your copy own of SAM.
Your computer is ready to talk.
