Stephen Hawking Upgrades his Voice

iChair + Macintalk
Gizmag reports that famed astrophysicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking is changing his voice. “[He] has selected and is using NeoSpeech’s Text-to-Speech engine, VoiceText, as his new voice. VoiceText is integrated into Dr. Hawking’s communicator, E Z Keys, enabling him to clearly communicate with the outside world.”

‘As a scientist and lecturer, it is imperative that Professor Hawking presents his findings in a clear and concise manner,’ said Tom Pelly, Dr. Hawking’s technical assistant. ‘Professor Hawking was very impressed by NeoSpeech’s speech synthesiser, as it was by far the most natural-sounding and realistic of all of the off-the-shelf software voices that he has heard. This technology can help ensure that his vocals match his research in terms of credibility and believability.’

I guess MC Hawking won’t be spinning any more freestylin’ our way now that his bionic pipes have new software. Shame.
