Applications-graphics.svg This is a retouched picture, which means that it has been digitally altered from its original version. Modifications: Various noise reductions applied, and the results blended together with the original to bring out Walt Whitman's voice from the noise. A few seconds of noise appended to the end, in order to avoid the abrupt termination in the original..
