Description:

My own voice is a speech synthesis software with integrated text editor and integrated tablet for use as a communication aid in conjunction with a PC or tablet. The program makes it possible to convert any entered text into speech (text-to-speech) and to have it pronounced in German with your own voice. For this purpose, voice recordings of the users are needed before loss of voice.

For persons who are threatened with loss of voice:

First, an approximately 3-hour voice recording is performed. At a later stage, when those affected can only express themselves in an insufficiently understandable way, the recorded voice is inserted into a software so that they can continue to communicate with their own voice.
