Linux Inlaws.

This is Linux Inlaws, a series on free and open source software, black humour, the revolution and freedom in general (this includes ideas and software) and generally having fun.

In this episode, Chris is harassed by quite a few artificial nuisance callers, among drug lords, Irish nurses and some random Linux Inlaws Chief Financial Officer. Based on these examples, our two heroes discuss the history and current state of text-to- speech (TTS) and voice recognition. We attempted to use voice recognition software in order to produce a transcript of the show.
