Coffee Break - April 6, 2020

Robbie hopes to bring back his home-brew 360 VR camera and bp9 has a working Kaypro 2X, complete with a floppy disk emulator that uses an SD card filled with floppy images! This starts us on a discussion about speech-to-text, and how far it has come from those early days, to Robbie's 'Dr. Sbaitso', to Peter's computer-generated speech synthesizer and even the Amazon Echo 'Alexa' character. Robbie Ferguson is joined today by Solbu, Doug Townsend, Ron Morrissette, bp9 and Peter Lewis.
