Text to Speech, Text Reader Software – Will Typography Still be Relevant?

As I listened to Gerry Leonidas talk tonight, it allowed me to focus on my process and confirm the direction that my compass is pointed. Playing the what if scenarios game in my head as the questions slowly trickled out of the audience, I asked Gerry if typography will be relevant if text reading software hits mainstream. What if everyone stopped reading and just listened? Will there be a role for the typographer? He answered the question as someone that is distrustful of technology would expect, you base the process on a methodology and transfer what you know to the new medium. Ok, he may not have said it exactly like that, but that’s what I have in my notes.

With that complete, it’s time to finish off a couple books and update the main site over the weekend.
