    If you haven’t already, try throwing the text into a text-to-speech program. If you have a Mac computer, you can select the whole text with command+A, right click, and click Speech > Start Speaking.

    It’s surprisingly interesting to listen to the text.

    Most of the time it just sounds like random letters and punctuation, but then it starts sounding like some weird disgusting language. At one point I swear I heard a southern accent.

    A challenge to go along with this is to play the text-to-speech for a while, listening passively while doing other things, and then attempt to find where you are using Ctrl+F. Listen to the text for a pattern to search for, like distinct sequences of consonants and punctuation.

    LOVE IT! I find that voiceover utility’s “Alex” is a great companion for this. he sounds like he really enjoys the challenge.

    the idea is great, but only an american can be this extremely dumb to spoil it devastatingly for no apparent reason. (mac + southern accent)

    I’m not even trying now listening to the library – my disappointment is severe.
