Discover the importance of voice and identity

Voice and accent is an integral part of our identity and conveys a lot about who we are and where we’re from – Alice Smith, SpeakUnique

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.

Join Alice Smith (CEO, SpeakUnique) and Becky Martin (SLT, Smartbox) to hear how this is changing, and the impact that regional and personalised voices can have.

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