I am a speech scientist who mainly works on speech synthesis technology, which is the conversion of written text into speech output. I developed a ‘voice cloning’ system that can create new synthetic voices from just a few minutes of recorded speech. The technology can be successfully applied to clinical voice banking and voice reconstruction for patients who have lost or are losing their voices due to conditions such as MND or Parkinson’s disease.
