Choose Your Preferred Face For Siri Or Alexa

Very easy to do.
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

Just say "Alexa, I'd like to chose your face." and it would pop up a few hundred or thousand choices. "Alexa, I want your face to be 126, Rosie The Riveter "

I'm sure somebody's suggested this but I don't do web research.

Better than a face. _22Siri-ize_22_20Do..._20Rain_27s_20Voice
The voice of HAL [doctorremulac3, Nov 11 2021]


       Can you have Alexa have multiple simultaneous voices, i.e. if you want your questions answered by a chorus?

[You] "Alexa, what's the weather tomorrow?" - [massed choir Alexa] "A bit rainy"

       I'm going to sayyyy.... yes.

       I'd pick Holly, obviously.

       Better that a face would have been if we had the voice of HAL 9000 available as a Seri or Alexa voice. Change the name obviously. (link) We missed our chance.   

       Although I'm sure somebody could program the voice using what we have from the movie. An audio deepfake.

       If you "know" I'll call you a troll simply for pointing out that something already exists and that I know that thing already exists I'll point out that, no, I just took down another idea that was baked after thanking the poster for pointing it out. You're an obnoxious troll for saying stupid stuff like "I’m sure you know this already but will call me a troll, bully, or some other nasty name for mentioning it."   

       That's why you're an obnoxious troll.   

       Here's a rule of thumb. Pretend you're at a party with people, face to face. (something that would never actually happen with you I understand but just pretend.) Would you walk up to them and say the kind of crap you say here?   

       I think you're a bitter little manlet who sees people having fun as an opportunity to exert yourself bravely in print like you wouldn't be able to do in real life by trying to ruin their fun.   

       So go haunt other people's posts and say off of mine. I'll grant you the same curtesy.   

       Go away.

       I'll add to the idea so it's not baked. Just paste a picture of someone on the unit and pretend it's Alexa. It could be anyone or anything. Satchel Page, your old dog Barney, a spoon.

       No. As I said, somebody JUST pointed out that I was "off point" by posting a WKTE. I thanked them and took down the post because they were very nice and weren't assholes about it. I also as a standard procedure leave the post up for a few hours so people will see why it's getting taken down.   

       You're obsessed with me. Get over it and go away.

       Alexa, how do you deal with trolls?   

       "The best way to deal with trolls is to not feed them."
