Re: a speech oddity


It occurs on my machine as well.  I suspect that somewhere "unch" is set up as shorthand for "unchanged" and since those four characters precede the "ecky" we're getting Unchanged-ecky.  If I change the synthesizer to eSpeak it changes to saying "Unchecky".

I can live with "unchanged ecky" simply because the David voice is very much preferred by me to most others.

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's never enough to keep up.
