Amanda Congdon’s voice

Hum… I was watching rocketboom (link) today and I thought "Hum… if I’m ever doing a computer speech system, I’d definitely ask Amanda to give her voice profile."
 
Why?  Well watch this video (link) and go to frame 1587 (or time index 00:01:45.801) and listen to the way she says the phrase "No punctuation encoding necessary." – she actually kinda sounds like VIKI in iRobot…
 
(But I guess it’ll be a while before any speech synthesizer gets this good…)
