babbletron - an interactive exploration of computer generated speech

The babbletron is a device that lets you explore the world of computer generated speech. The basic concept used by the babbletron is that synthetic speech can be approximated using a small set of phonetically isolated speech fragments, called phonemes. To produce a word or phrase, you combine phonemes in a sequence that makes a voice recognizable to the human ear.
