My dictation program has an accent It types out the most unreadable things, When I say something like " my bunion stings", It types back to me about onion rings. There have been embarrassing moments When I was chatting along quite normally. I found myself feeling very thankful That I hadn't been chatting formally.
The conversation needn't be special, Nor use any esoteric phrases. But some of the crap this program prints Astounds, stultifies and amazes. It can't be brushed off as an accent thing; My speech is quite non-dialectic. Sometimes it seems that Apple, Inc Wants to render me apoplectic.
But, the way it is I have no human beings That I can focus my frustration on When something that company sells at a store Turns me into an unwitting pawn. As it is it's an iPhone and I can't pity it When I hit "send" too fast and seem an idiot. It’s possible I am asking far too much Of the current reach of technology. Even though our phones seem part of us They aren’t really part of our anatomy.
