Bill, I don't disagree with you here. It may be unacceptable from a
sociological standpoint, however, from a technological standpoint, it
is easy to recognize the speaker compared to recognizing what the
speaker is saying. In other words, many people talking at once would
not bother the computer, but it might bother the other people in the
room. Not sure which you were getting at here.
