"Save mum's voice" -- a meaningful application AI based text-to-speech
Professor Lee Tan’s team helped an oral cancer patient who lost her natural voice after surgery to “speak” again in her own voice. This was done using a tailored text-to-speech system based on deep learning models. The patient can communicate with others by typing words or sentences in the App and the App will generate speech in the patient's own voice. The team is improving the technology in the hope of helping more people in need in the future.
