Dear CTPC Members,


Please join us for next week’s meeting –  Tuesday, June 27th, 6:30 pm at the United Congregational Church, 275 Richards Avenue, Norwalk.


This month we’ll focus on sound.  When looking at computers and other devices we tend to focus on the visuals – retina displays, megapixels, HD video, etc.  But audio is advancing quickly, in ways we wouldn’t necessarily expect.  Richard Frisch will take us through some of those innovations: 

    1. Audio assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Now.
    2. Audio readers such as TextAloud are beginning to sound much more human.
    3. Voice typing (available in Google Docs and Office 365 add-on Dictate) can drastically reduce the need for using a keyboard and the accuracy keeps improving.
    4. Sound editing used to be a tedious process involving sharp instruments.  Today with the use of DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) software such as Audacity (free) it’s much easier, and far safer!
    5. The future of sound editing will be even better as applications merge the above technologies to make editing speech similar to textual word processing.

Sound good?  Come find out more through Richard’s live demos and videos. 


Other topics are welcome as well.  After the meeting we’ll adjourn to Uncle Joe’s for pizza and refreshments.  We hope to see you there.
