This is a test

I have never posted to a forum before using the phone. I am not typing this I am using voice to text. Curious to see how it works, and additionally prove that using a phone does not mean crappy poorly spelled posts.

It appears to have worked quite well. What software did you use?

I wound up in the upper left corner of the right/libertarian quadrant. I'm actually pretty close to the center.

None. Just the regular voice to text feature on the iPhone through the Safari browser. I only had to type the comma. I'm also happy to see it didn't add any goofy "sent from my iPhone using whack a mole" type sig.
The speech recognition on that phone is pretty amazing.

Interesting test. I came out sitting in Ghandi's lap just about. A lot of very loaded questions.

I thought you was going to say.

this is a test of the emergency broadcast system. If this would have been an actual emergency, the tone would have been followed by instructions on what to do in this emergency situation.

This explains the chart in political terms


I'm green centrist.

The questions are of course 'loaded'. The politics of the question determines direction, and extreme answers plot further from center.
