This is real and is working now: individuals who can no longer speak can keep communicating with a digital copy of their voice.
Launched in early 2015, the innovative ‘my-own-voice’ solution created by Acapela Group has permitted thousands of people to create a digital copy of their own voice. For patients diagnosed with ALS or cancer or facing speech disabilities, the breakthrough solution allows individuals to keep speaking with their voice, by creating a digital version based on only a few minutes of recordings.
The result definitely changes the daily life of individuals who can keep communicating with this very personal part of everyone’s identity, the voice.
My-own-voice is currently available in 15 languages, with more to come shortly. It is a very simple online service, that does not require any specific recording equipment or computer skills. The process is simple: just connect and record a list of sentences. Create your voice for free. Test it and buy it only when you need it. The cost is 999 USD for a perpetual licence or 99 USD per year with a subscription.
Thousands of accounts have been created thus far. And we are moving forward very quickly thanks to our users’ feedback. Team Gleason, MNDA, The Boston Children’s Hospital and the Department of Veteran Affairs are all part of the essential players that have already selected ‘my-own-voice’ as a reliable and sustainable solution.

Those voices are based on the first research and results of Acapela’s R&D team on Deep Neural Networks (Acapela DNN). The voices have kept their promise. While we are working on continuous improvement of the service, we are also actively working on the next steps of Neural TTS.
