The accent, that of a robot that actually dislikes you, like it does all fleshbags, is not all that different. Both of the voices are synthesized from your computer, too, as we realized in this patent.

If micronization trickles up like this voice application has trickled down, I suppose one day the phones and computers will be shuffle sized, too. Like in Zoolander.
