Yeah, without the audio file it's meaningless.

I don't think it's merely an accent issue

If people want to submit the audio, they are more than welcome to. The problem is that we are just using the standard Google Docs form, which doesn't allow any audio files to be posted through there. So, to make it easy on us, I just figured I'd let them give me the typed original message instead. Thanks for visiting the Google Voice Screwups site and please keep those funny messages coming in!

I've had fun with my own mis-translations

When jott was free I used to send emails, sms and blog posts from the car, but I guess it led to similar outtakes as here though mostly {unintelligible,please listen}in parts of the msg

Would be fun to see a star trek parody of this, or hal 2001
