Several years ago -- I've converted to TR Log now -- I used the DVP to
"speak" numbers and call-signs in SS.  The result was not very encouraging
-- I got far more fill requests than when using my own voice.  My impression
is that the voicing can work fine in running, where stations are expecting
their call-signs, but much less well when conveying "must-copy-right" info
like serial numbers.  I suppose it might be possibleto improve on this
through careful recording -- Ma Bell seems to be doing it OK with their
information service -- but that's an essentially noise-free channel.  I'm
perfectly happy using my DVP to send the repetitive part of the exchange,
call CQ, etc.
