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 **** 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 ****. 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.
