THE TALK THAT STARTED IT ALL...

TEDWomen

The seed for VocaliD was planted at TEDWomen when Dr. Rupal Patel exclaimed that… “Each one of us has a unique voiceprint that reflects our age, our size, even our lifestyle and personality.”

“As a speech scientist,” she continued “I’m fascinated by how the voice is produced, and I have an idea how it can be engineered.” 

The international response to this TED talk brought VocaliD to life.
