I believe it's left over after Google used it for years to get a *huge* number of voice samples, for their project of very accurate, speaker-independent, speech recognition. Google tried to come up with relatively cheap to provide information people might want, then they tried to get them to say a large number of words; especially place names, business names, etc. They eventually closed down tell-me a couple of years ago, but it proved to have enough fans that it looks like someone bought it and is starting it up again. -----Original Message----- From: tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of mccaulo@xxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, October 21, 2013 7:45 AM To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [tabi] Re: New non-800 number for Tell-Me What is Tell-Me? -----Original Message----- From: Sila Miller <silam@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: tabi <tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Mon, Oct 21, 2013 5:35 am Subject: [tabi] New non-800 number for Tell-Me (330) 247-7411 Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
