People often pronounce a word differently when asked to read written material aloud than when speaking spontaneously. These differences may cause problems for those who develop computers that recognize speech. Usually the developers Â«trainÂ» the computers by using samples of written material read by the people who will be using the compute.

The observations above provide most evidence for the conclusion that

(A) It will be impossible to develop computers that decode spontaneous speech.
(B) When reading written material, people who have different accents pronounce the same word in the same way as one another.
(C) Computers may be less reliable in decoding spontaneous speech than in decoding samples that have been read aloud.
(D) A Â«trainedÂ» computer never correctly decodes the spontaneous speech of a person whose voice sample was used to train it.
(E) Computers are now able to interpret oral speech without error.
