lending a…..voice

People with severe speech impediments often must rely on robotic-sounding voice generators to communicate. A new program called VocaliD now allows donors to literally “lend their voice” to those who do not have one. After a voice is donated, it is matched with a recipient of the same sex, age, and a voice somewhat similar to the donor. The company is now asking people from all over the world to donate their voices so that they can build up their “voice bank,” with plans to develop an iPhone app to make donation as easy as possible.
