This speech recognition software supposedly analyzes your voice to see if you are mentally ill. It recognizes “voice biomarkers” to identify anxiety, depression, and other conditions

I’m thinking this is complete crap. I’m thinking it wouldn’t be able to tell “mental illness” from drunk, tired, or normal southern accent.

And to label someone based on this is criminally foolhardy. And it could easily become a tool for government to say they are confining you for your own good. We don’t want this.
