I'll include the whole text file, in case you want to know how the short story turns out!
Wow! Thanks for trying this. It was actually a bit better than I expected and I'm not sure if it is due to the female voice used (reminds me of my GPS ). I'm so used to the "Stephen Hawkings" male voice for these things.

If I closed my eyes to listen, some parts were hard to follow but I think I could get accustomed, kind of like getting used to a thick accent.

Very interesting. It will be fun to see where technology goes with this in the next 5-10 years.

Thanks again!
