[VoiceOps] Sophisticated Voice-Response Robocalls

Over the last half decade or so, there has been a big movement toward 
automatic speech recognition (ASR) coupled with text-to-speech (TTS) 
that has a much more "natural" tone and cadence.

"Huh! Sounds kind of like a real human, actually!" is all the rage, 
while robotic recordings are out.

There's a huge polarisation in ASR and TTS technologies. The bad ones - 
e.g. the stock add-ons in the open source world - are pretty bad. The 
good ones, however, are really, _really_ good. And really expensive.

Last I heard Voxeo is still the market leader in that second category, 
but things may have changed.
