    I've heard some complaints about the robot voice reading the video text.
    And to be fair it does get in the way of the music.

    But I think it's a nice touch -- although it's also extra work.

    What do you think?
    YAY or NAY? Why?

    I really dislike robot voices myself. I prefer to use their own voice or hiring someone to do voiceover. If I hear a robot voice, I close the video right away.

    I don't really like robotic voices, mainly because they talk too slow and I'd rather just read the text and get on with it. Then again, if I were to read it, I might as well go to a blog post. Unless you're using some kind of program that gives a real smooth voice, I wouldn't recommend it.

    What is the purpose of the voice? What do you want to get across with it? :D

    Speaking personally... as soon as I hear a robotic voice I turn off the video. Just don't like em
