Period: 2013 - 2015
TALP UPC develops various speech technologies to apply in the medical sector. The aim is to provide a voice synthesizer for patients whose voice was totally or partially lost after surgery that affected their vocal chords. The project is developed as part of the INNPACTO program in conjunction with the universities of Vigo and the Basque Country. TALP UPC’s work focuses on synthesizing the voice of each person by applying connectionist learning models (e.g. neural networks) to the automatic recognition of the speech of people whose voices have been distorted as a result of surgery.
