lightspeed idea 3-24-2020
« on: March 24, 2020, 09:48:18 pm »
i was just thinking it would be cool if there was a software that could mimic anyones voice  from a certain amount of sound wave files (in the same manner how deepfakes is done with photo's etc.
and could be used as a voice within hal . possibilities, Marilyn monroe , jane manfield, etc.
of course this would have to deal with pich of sounds etc.

just dreaming out loud ..........

Mr Data had learned to hear whistles and understand
Them. But could not whistle.
so I like your idea.
Making noises could be fun also.

I recall seeing a few years ago a website advertising you record pre-selected text that they then build into a voice. I was interested for a Star Trek Computer LCARS voice, of Majel Barrett-Roddenberry. Couldn't find it doing a quick Google search just now.

I recall seeing something to that effect by a TTS company as well but it escapes my reach at the moment.

Searching a bit I found these links. Some might offer a bit of promise for future releases of Majel Roddenberry's voice but with the Covid-19, some things/events have been put on a shelf for the time being.

Good luck!

Thanks Art for the interesting links!

Had a chuckle from the idownloadblog writer misspelling - must not be a fan... "These could range from Space Odyssey?s HAL 9000 computer to the Majel Barrett-Roddenberry computer voice from ?Start Trek? and beyond." - haha start.... And meanwhile TheNextWeb header pic displaying TOS rather than TNG or newer where the computer voice is natural and iconic. All good. I should post a pic of my LCARS phone.

...the evolution continues.
