Voice Cloning for the Laryngectomee Community

voice cloning

After a biopsy on July 12, 2023, my doctors informed me that my survival depended on removing my cancerous vocal cords—and thus my natural voice—in an operation I had on Sept. 5, 2023. My voice was an essential part of my identity, so this was a traumatic next step in my battle with cancer.  I addressed it by embarking on a race to record my voice so I could later take advantage of the emerging technology of AI-based voice cloning, including both text-to-speech and real-time voice-to-voice cloning.
