    It’s definitely a lost opportunity. Back in 2003, Nu Echo worked on such a system (called Talk-to-Santa). TTS was already good enough at that time and the application was a great success. The voice was maybe a bit robotic sometimes, but I guess young kids didn’t really notice. The application even used speech recognition with some very effective error recovery strategies.
