Discover the importance of voice and identity

For many years the range of voices available to people who use communication aids has been limited, with little innovation happening to improve quality or representation of regional accents, gender or age.

Discover how new voice technology can make synthetic voice creation easier and quicker and hear more about the new voice features available in Grid.
