Service Creates Custom Voices For Those Who Can’t Speak
VocaliD uses your voice to give people a unique way to express themselves.
People with sever speech impediments often have to rely on an artificial voice that sounds an awful lot like a robot. VocaliD wants to give those people a better way to express themselves, which is why they have started a service that lets you donate your voice.
The first step is to select a surrogate of the same sex, similar age, and who has with a voice that sounds somewhat similar to the recipient. Just like a prosthetic limb, the voice has to fit the person, otherwise it wouldn’t be much use at all.
