ToneCheck — "Emotional spell-check"



Robotic impulse control.


Free, the way we like it.

[via Jascha Hoffman's item in the December 19, 2010 New York Times magazine. He wrote, "ToneCheck, an e-mail-outbox filter that works as a sort of emotional spell-check, offers typists a chance to reconsider their words before hitting 'send.' If the content of a message exceeds a preset threshold for negative emotions like anger or sadness, the e-mailer is confronted with a warning and a chance to revise. Drawing on the opinions of thousands of people who have been paid to evaluate the emotional charge of various phrases, the software can also detect unseemly levels of positive emotions like affection or elation.]

Common Flautist, we're a dying breed.

But as all things come and go, real lip service will make a comeback,

maybe in 2018 or whenever!
