“Ok this is attempt no. 2 to see if the automatic transcription for LiveJournal voice post will kick in. Perhaps my last post was a little too long at fucking in at 2 minutes and 39 seconds. It might be too close to the 3 minute mark. My friend warned me about. So let me just give you a little update. Luke is sitting on arm of the couch right now. Pouring and rubbing his face on the laptop and my Kung Fu Panda is lying on my lap passed out after having a little bit of a snack and I am currently recording a voice now ___ let's see what happens this time.”

"f***ing in" / "Luke...Pouring (sic)"

For some reasaon, I think the auto-transcriber either takes too many liberties in a choice of words and phrasing or gets extremely literal in other cases. It's a decent attempt, but I guess the general gist of the message does come across...sorta...

No, this is simply what you get when a computer is doing the transcription. It can't listen for the sense but just the sound.

That too...and I have the tendency to broaden my vowel sounds and clearly enunciate when I know I'm being recorded for posterity (most of the time, at least). Granted, that tends to stretch recording time, so hitting the three minute mark can be pretty easy in this case.

Also, it doesn't help that transmitting by voice over the phone is still a matter of bad connections, over the top compression, and awful static and hiss. Let's just face it--aging copper is rusting off the telephone pole. :-/

I totally giggled at the F bomb. It seems much more fun if I imagine the computer is an evil mastermind trying to make Alyce look bad.

I think/assume/hope that F-bomb is a transcription error?
