My diagramming bent had me map out the workflow of a client’s production process, to identify opportunities to tweak the process to bring in better learning science with minimal interruption. Listening, as I mentioned, in this case to Guy Wallace.

Text-to-Speech Overview and NLP Quality

Tony Karrer

Text-to-speech can create professional voice narration without any recording which provides significant advantages: keeps narrated presentations continuously up to date (it's too time consuming/expensive to rerecord human narration) faster development - streamlined workflow lower costs.

Thus we can develop a workflow ontology in OWL. So ontology modules can be efficiently interchanged. You can get different perspectives to a module. The knowledge base of the 'utilizer' modules are augmented by sets of nominals from 'realizer' modules. After augmentation, the knowledge engines are not expected to take into account the realizer modules any more. Diagram of 'requirements' module). These are defined by other modules.
