Roger Ebert Gets His Voice Back

2 03 2010

Famed film critic Roger Ebert has not been able to speak for four years, since undergoing cancer-related surgery. He’s been communicating with hand signals, monotone text-to-speech software, and of course, his twitter account.

But today he gets his voice back, Scotland-based tech company CereProc created a text-to-speech voice using archived recordings of Ebert speaking (specifically, DVD commentary tracks). The result is amazing.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
