Classroom of the Future (Part 2, 1987)

Part 2 of the 1987 concept video Classroom of the Future is fairly accurate in depicting what the Internet would eventually allow people to do. Again, the voice synthesis and recognition seem superfluous.

So apparently the computers of the future have voice recognition and synthesis, but all text is still transmitted at 4800 baud...
