The ModelTalker System is a speech synthesis software package for people who use a Speech Generating Device (SGD). It allows people to communicate with a personal synthetic voice that is representative of their own voice. The system uses recorded speech (either from a prospective SGD user or from a voice donor) to create a unique synthetic voice. This synthetic voice can be used to express almost anything, including words and phrases that were not recorded.
Extra product information
See ModelTalker website for frequently asked questions regarding how the software works, and to determine which SGDs and communication apps are compatible. Currently available with Predictable 4 and Chatable 2.
