The United States Army’s original Jane 1.0 was a highly secured software system similar to the other voice interface programs of the 1900s and early 2000s. They used a voice actress to record her speaking parts and Jane spent most of her time warning the tank crews about problems they already knew about since they could read their instruments. Soldiers saw her as distracting rather than supportive in battle and came up with a number of derisive nicknames for her. Hanoi Jane was one such name that certain elements of society objected to. Attempts to replace the nickname with more politically correct variations failed spectacularly and Hanoi Jane stuck.
