Acapela Group is the European leader of voice solutions with 30 years of expertise, deeply involved in Accessibility and Education for decades and well known pioneer in creating genuine synthetic children voices for the past 10 years.
The company relies on its expertise acquired along the way, especially since the inception of my-own-voice, for opening the usage of my-own-voice service to a young public. Acapela aims to support children with speech or language disorders by enabling them to communicate with a voice that make sense to them (either their voice or one donated by a relative/friend).
My-own-voice is based on the latest innovations made with DNN (Deep Neural Networks) and offers individuals diagnosed with speech or language disorders the possibility to create their own digital voice. The new version, awarded Best Innovation at CES 2023 benefits from the state of the art technology and provides unequalled quality.
A synthetic voice that sounds like its user
The solution is the easiest and quickest way to create a synthetic voice that truly sounds like its user. It is a web-based solution, used by people with speech or language disorders to easily create a personalized synthetic voice, based on either existing recordings (message banking) or new speech recordings (voice banking.)
Only 50 sentences to record
With the recording of only 50 sentences, the service generates a voice that keeps the essence of the original voice in terms of timbre, accent and intonation. The voice and way of speaking are instantly recognizable. The full process is short and simple and based on the latest innovation and model of Deep Neural Network methodology.
Support new users
Already benefiting by over 3 000 users worldwide, mostly by people suffering from degenerative diseases, Acapela Group is targeting 10 000 users by 2024. To do so, Acapela Group will ever strengthen its collaboration with associations and partners in various health fields (pediatrics, cancer, Parkinson’s disease…)to keep spreading awareness about its flagship voice banking solution.
