- Donald Sherman orders a pizza using a talking computer, Dec 4, 1974 at Youtube.com. This speech synthesizer by w:Michigan State University is claimed to be the first one to be used for speech w:prosthesis in history on 1974-12-04. Domino's missed their chance to make history by hanging up the call thinking it is just some prank. Mr. Mike's pizza was the first pizza parlor to take a pizza order via speech synthesis
- The Birth of the Synthetic Voice at jmpelletier.com[1st seen in 1] written by Jean-Marc Pelletier holds the view that the first voice synthesis took place in 1931 and was not done with computers.

Consider the fate that befell journalist and human rights activist Rana Ayyub. When a deepfake sex video appeared in April 2018 showing Ayyub engaged in a sex act in which she never engaged, the video spread like wildfire. Within 48 hours, the video appeared on more than half of the cellphones in India. Ayyub’s Facebook profile and Twitter account were overrun with death and rape threats. Posters disclosed her home addressed and claimed that she was available for anonymous sex.
