BeSpoke Voices

Finally, a digital voice made for you.

The first-ever personalized voices, unique to each individual, have arrived.

It's not just a speech generating device, it's your voice.

Millions of people rely on synthetic speech to communicate everyday. Yet, they’re given a limited set of generic, robotic sounding voices. Voices that don’t fit their body or personality.

We wouldn’t dream of fitting a little girl with the prosthetic limb of a grown man — so, why then the same prosthetic voice?

BeSpoke empowers people to speak as themselves.

  • A young girl should be able to sound less like Stephen Hawking, and more like her own age, gender and personality.
  • A spouse should be able to express his hopes, thoughts, and feelings to his loved one as himself.
  • A job candidate should be able to speak with her own voice to connect with potential employers and colleagues.
  • A parent should be able to hear their child speak in a voice they recognize as their child’s own.

Here's how it works:

Our engineers have pioneered a streamlined voice creation process that takes advantage of our proprietary voice blending technology and crowdsourced Voicebank recordings to build unique, customized voices for use in text-to-speech applications.

VocaliD blends your vocalizations with your donor's recordings to build your unique voice.

"That sounds great, but is a personalized custom voice really that important?"

Speaking in one’s own voice shouldn't be a luxury — it’s a right. Whether you use your natural speaking voice or you rely on assistive technology, a voice is more than just sound. It's a reflection of who you are.

"Aren't there already custom voice options available?"

Only VocaliD produces actual custom voices. Our voices are unique because they harness the recipient’s very own vocalizations, which are then blended with recordings from a matched speech contributor in our Human Voicebank.

"My family's ability to pay for a voice is limited. Why is the BeSpoke™ Voice priced that way?"

Our goal to create a product that is accessible to all regardless of their financial means. With a one-time voice purchase, we intend to support our users' capability to speak as themselves for the rest of their lives. BeSpoke™ Voices can grow and adapt as the recipient matures.

While prosthetic voices are not covered by insurance (yet), many of our pre-order clients have also used crowdfunding approaches, which serve to both bring communities together in support of an individual and raise awareness, and also to raise the funds necessary to build a custom VocaliD voice.

"I have XYZ Speech Generating Device/App. Will it even work on this?"

VocaliD™ voices are compatible with speech-generating devices and consumer applications across platforms — including our own MyVocaliD app for iOS and Android as well as Windows devices. We have established relationships with a number of the assistive communication device manufacturers (e.g. Tobii Dynavox, PRC, Smartbox Grid3 and LC Technologies, etc.) and are continuing to forge others.

"When will my pre-ordered voice be delivered?"

Pre-orders will be filled starting in the fall of 2016 on a first-ordered, first-delivered basis.

"What if I try the BeSpoke™ Voice, and I decide it isn't right for me?"

There are stories, of course, of people (like Stephen Hawking!) who grew attached to their commercial voice and have since claimed it as their own. And that's okay, too. Our aim is to give each person their own unique voice, completely personalized for each recipient, so that they can be heard as themselves. Because of the individualized engineering time that goes into building each voice, they are non-refundable but we will continue to work with you as technology improves. Please contact us at hello@vocalid.co with additional questions.

Over contributors have recorded 7 million sentences for voice creation and are waiting to be matched with you right now.
