Play sounds and foil surveillance with it

This app would hook into the lowest possible layer of a cell phone whenever it's plugged in or when it's told to. It would generate and play random words in the user's voice into the phone's microphone circuit as if that sound were actually being spoken.

The idea is to foil listeners.

       yes all listeners. It won't operate nor would it work during phone calls, this is for other times.

       Ah, so you've re-invented the white noise generator. It's a human noise generator.

       I really don't understand how the US has let things get so out of hand. Over here, Scrabble is quite popular, but its governing body has little influence.

       The converse of this idea is to make a code using the sounds of pocket change, jingling keys, squeaking chair, and other sounds one might expect if the phone were to accidentally come on in ones pocket. Noone will suspect that truly these sounds encode the plans for the Megaweapon!
