BeSpoke Voices: Empowering personal and social self-identity for those who rely on speech generating devices to communicate

This PPT accompanies the webinar, BeSpoke Voices, presented by Dr. Rupal Patel, Speech Scientist and Technologist. BeSpoke Voices leverages years of research to create custom crafted voices by blending only 2-3 seconds of the recipient’s voice (the Vocal DNA) with recordings of a matched speaker from its crowd sourced Human VoiceBank. BeSpoke voice captures the clarity of the matched speaker but the vocal identity of the recipient so s/he can be heard through his/her own voice.
