Editors' Review

AVSOFT's Digital Talking Parrot is strictly for fun. This free screensaver simulates a talking parrot, but like the real thing, Digital Talking Parrot can learn, remember, and repeat what you teach it. You can edit its vocabulary or record words using your system microphone. The program can run as a screensaver or standalone app.

Digital Talking Parrot installs conventionally, though the installer did offer several extras, including one tool we had to deliberately decline to keep from being installed. Unlike some screensavers, Digital Talking Parrot also has its own Start Menu folder, complete with dedicated uninstaller. The program's main interface includes File, Edit, View, and Help menus. Since it's as much a program as a screensaver, you configure Digital Talking Parrot from its own interface as well as the Screen Saver Settings in Windows. In fact, unlike most screensavers, Digital Talking Parrot doesn't automatically set itself as the default system screensaver, and we had to open the Personalization settings and enable it as a screensaver.

Digital Talking Parrot produces some very realistic parrot-like sounds, including everyday chattering as well as basic words. We clicked Vocabulary under the program's settings, which opened a small dialog that looks like a cross between a help file and a media player. A tree view let us select Parrot's Own Words, Parrot Remembered, or Record, with the ability to make recordings via the player controls, though naturally you'll need a microphone, too. The Speech settings' sliders let us adjust Pitch level, Vibrate period, and Vibrate level to produce a wide range of parrot voices. We don't doubt pet owners could use the controls to produce a pretty fair job simulating the actual voices of their fine feathered friends, too. We could also change the program's background scene from an interior room view to several natural options. We don't need to mention the humorous possibilities of being able to "train" Digital Talking Parrot to say whatever you want it to, do we? We didn't think so!

As per Norton / Symantec:

WS.Viral.1 is a cloud based detection for files that are unclassified threats.

A file flagged by this detection name is deemed by Symantec to be an unclassified malicious threat and is therefore blocked from accessing the computer.
