What are we talking about?

Edward's considered the voice of the net generation. Back in 1989, Edwards's wife, Karen, was working in customer service for a little-known outfit in Vienna, Virginia. Karen overheard the company's CEO, describe how he wanted to add a voice to its user interface. Her advice: "I said, 'Hey, you ought to try Edward.'" And the rest is history. Which company and what are we talking about?

He is the voice in AOL's you have got mail voice message.
