[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Mouthy is the only way to get Siri (R) to talk back. You type it, Siri will say it. Using the latest in text-to-speech, you can type a phrase and have it read it back to you, even unlocking various languages and accents to spice it up. Mouthy is Free for a limited time, starting the day before Thanksgiving.
Some use cases of Mouthy:
* Prank the driver by faking driving directions
* Order a pizza in a robotic voice
* Say anything and blame it on the phone
* Have a verbal battle with friends
* Play with funny accents
"I thought of it a year ago, when driving with my wife's parents," says Alaric. "The father-in-law was using Siri for navigation. I knew that (if you enable it in Settings) you could get Siri to speak any text you select. Envisioning the perfect prank, I typed 'In 500 feet, turn right...you idiot'.
The whole car was floored. I realized the power I now yielded, as few people would suspect that a Siri voice is anything, butSiri herself.
He set to work on an app which would bring this ability to prank to the masses, and enable you to create a few phrases in advance (typing is slow on iPhones, isn't it?) The result is Mouthy. Probably the silliest app he's ever created, as he's known primarily for graphics and photography apps.
