Computer-generated speech might soon sound a lot more human.
Computer parts maker NVIDIA recently unveiled tools that can capture the sound of natural speech by letting you train an AI with your voice. The software also can deliver one speaker’s words using another person’s voice. It’s part of a burgeoning push to make computer speech more realistic.
“Advanced voice AI technology is allowing users to speak naturally, combining many inquiries into a single sentence and eliminating the need to repeat details from the original query constantly,” Michael Zagorsek, the chief operating officer of speech recognition company SoundHound, told Lifewire in an email interview.
