How to create a personalised synthetic voice if you can’t record yourself?
The perfect voice maker. Let’s assume a tool like this exists, and you found it. Can you benefit from such a solution if your voice is too weak to record?
You will be happy to know that the answer is yes. You can still create a personalised synthetic voice, even if you can’t record yourself anymore.
Through voice donation.
Voice donation is the process which allows you to ask a family member or a trusted friend to record and create a personalised digital voice for you. This way you can use a voice that you have an emotional connection with, rather settling with a generic voice which most communication solutions come with.
Is voice donation for me?
Voice donation is recommended for people who have already lost their voice but would like to use a voice they have an emotional connection with.
What are the benefits of voice donation?
It’s true that the voice you create through voice donation will not be your personal voice. It will be the voice of a person you nominated to create a digital voice for you.
What matters more, however, is that your new voice will be:
Unique & emotional – You can choose to use a voice you will have an emotional connection with. Maybe it’s someone you love deeply, your mother, sister or best friend.
Personal – Why use a generic voice that most solutions offer when you can choose a personalised voice?
In short: Voice donation is a solution that gives you an opportunity to have a personalised digital voice after you’ve lost your own natural voice.
Did you know that Professor Stephen Hawking used a voice his friend created for him? The legend says that when Hawking was suggested to upgrade to a ‘newer voice’, he answered ‘Thank you but no, my friend Dennis’s voice is my voice.”
