Neural networks learning how to talk

I'm looking for a mp3 of a computer learning how to talk.

My CS professor played us a clip of a neural network learning how to turn text into speech. It starts out just babbling and eventually figures out stuff like spaces between words and so on. I think it's being trained on another synthesizer, and was working at the phonetic level (rather than outputting PCM data).

I sort of think it might have been a Bell Labs project?

Best answer: It was probably Sejnowski's NETtalk.

That's awesome. It sounds like Aphex Twin.
