strange boing noise strange boing noise
Posting a comment (on the thread above) reminded me of an idea I had when Windows 7 came out.
Apart from the Windows 7 OS Tan theme, I am unaware of any Voice Event packs.
I used some wav files that I found, to add voice alerts (instead of sounds) to my XP install. Initiating (Shutdown) 02.wav
When Windows 7 first came out, I thought that MS had missed an opportunity by not having them.
I would have thought, a lot of people would prefer voice announcements, to the nondescript sounds.
I wouldn't mind having Angelina Jolie (or Kate Beckinsale) announcing various PC events.
I'm sure a lot of Star Trek fans would like William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy or Patrick Stewart announcing events.
Die-hard Windows fanatics might even like hear Bill Gates make the announcements.
Obviously there would be cost issues involved.
They could have sold these packs for some nominal amount (e.g. $0.50 - $0.99 each) as downloads (just like music).
What do other people think?
