Women talk three times as much as men, says study [Apr. 2nd, 2009|07:06 pm]

Dr Brizendine, whose book is based on her own clinical work and analyses of more than 1,000 scientific studies, added: "There is no unisex brain."

"Girls arrive already wired as girls, and boys arrive already wired as boys. Their brains are different by the time they're born, and their brains are what drive their impulses, values and their very reality.

"I know it is not politically correct to say this but I've been torn for years between my politics and what science is telling us.

"I believe women actually perceive the world differently from men.

Did you know you can use the Speech Synthesiser that is installed as part of MS Office in your own programs?

Copy the bit below into notepad, and save it as "speech.vbs", then run it. =D





const svsflagsasync = 1
const svsfpurgebeforespeak = 2

set speech = createobject("sapi.spvoice")

for each v in speech.getvoices
wscript.echo v.getdescription
next

set speech.voice=speech.getvoices.item(0)
speech.rate=2
speech.volume=100
speech.speak "Hi, my name is Stephen Hawkings. I am the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge. I love working there because there's lots of hot babes on campus. Oooo. Oh yeah baby... that's the way.", svsflagsasync + svsfpurgebeforespeak

do
wscript.sleep 100
'do things here.
loop until speech.waituntildone(10)
