What Not to do with Your Software

by Peter Basch

One dubious feature some programs have is to have your computer read the script aloud, using synthesized voices. I guess it doesn't hurt anything to install it, but the voices are creepy, and it will take up valuable disk space which you could devote to all your rewrites.

On the other hand, if your story is story is a dialog between two robots, this could be the perfect way to have a reading, without having to feed actors!
