Hi, I’m Tom Guard. Well, not really. This is my writing but not my voice. I’ve been messing around with a new pet.  Meet Polly!

On a side note, hurricane dorian can kiss my ass.

Ok, now back to Amazon Polly.

Amazon Polly is a cloud service that converts text into lifelike speech. You can use Amazon Polly to develop applications that increase engagement and accessibility. Amazon Polly supports multiple languages and includes a variety of lifelike voices, so you can build speech-enabled applications that work in multiple locations and use the ideal voice for your customers. With Amazon Polly, you only pay for the text you synthesize. You can also cache and replay Amazon Polly’s generated speech at no additional cost.

Additionally, Amazon Polly includes a number of Neural Text-to-Speech voices, delivering ground-breaking improvements in speech quality through a new machine learning approach, thereby offering to customers the most natural and human-like text-to-speech voices possible. Neural TTS technology also supports a Newscaster speaking style that is tailored to news narration use cases.

Amazon is using people, websites and devices to understand patterns of language.  The problem is with Polly is that I do have to pay for usage. It does not cost that much. Using Amazon’s web servers  is probably my lowest bill each month.

Alright, so you don’t want to hear any more of this nerd shit? That’s Okay. This is just a test.

I’ll leave you with a little professionalism. 

All right!
Stop whatcha doin’
‘Cause I’m about to ruin
The image and the style that ya used to
I look funny
But yo I’m makin’ money, see
So yo world I hope you’re ready for me
Now gather round
I’m the new fool in town
And my sound’s laid down by the Underground
I drink up all the Hennessey ya got on ya shelf
So just let me introduce myself
My name is Humpty, pronounced with a Umpty
Yo ladies, oh how I like to hump thee
And all the rappers in the top ten–please allow me to bump thee
I’m steppin’ tall, y’all
And just like Humpty Dumpty
You’re gonna fall when the stereos pump me
