  • Speech startup VocaliD creates personalized voices with crowd’s help

    Xconomy - 06/15/2015

    VocaliD creates a computer voice that sounds like the user once did—or, in the case of someone who has never spoken, sounds like what they would have. Patel, a speech clinician and scientist who is a tenured professor at Northeastern University, uses the small noises from something like a laugh or hum from a person who can’t speak and records it. From the recording, Patel and her colleagues run the voice through their own computer software, which analyzes it for pitch, loudness, and rhythm, among myriad other factors.
