Now people can have natural-sounding unique artificial voices. WOW.

I heard a great Ted Talk on NPR yesterday.

You are probably familiar with artificial electronic voices, as used by Stephen Hawking and others.

It's weird to have two people conversing who both sound like the robotic Hawking.

Now it's possible to create natural-sounding _unique_ voices for people with CP or other severe speech disorders, based on a sample of even two syllables. AMAZING.
