1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    if you've figured out how to auto-accept on your own, you probably know the difference between good work and garbage

    I wasn't entirely satisfied with the English voice, so I started trying the others.
    I wasn't really trying to make it sound "funny"; I was just trying things out.

    In retrospect I shouldn't have posted that.
    It might be misconstrued as disrespectful or mocking the voice. I really didn't mean it that way.

    BTW I'm looking for good free text-to-speech engines.
    I currently use eSpeak (old version because my lame Windows 7 pc apparently can't run the new version).
