Humanizing the voice inside any device that speaks

VocaliD crowdsources human speech to create custom digital voices

As featured on NBC Nightly News: VocaliD meets Leo True-Frost, an 8-year-old with cerebral palsy seeking his own unique voice.

VocaliD redefines how we interact with intelligent devices — and each other

Over ten million people are unable to speak. Over 500 million everyday devices and applications are narrated by a voice. All of them choose from the same few generic, mechanical voices.

But our voices are not identical. Our voices are our identities.


The world's first personalized digital voices

The VocaliD platform powers the creation of unique vocal identities for any device that turns text into speech


Seconds of Sound With a single vowel, voice recipients can launch the creation of their digital voice almost instantly.

Potential Matches People from all walks of life share the raw speech needed to create new voices or bank their own.


Personalized Voice VocaliD transforms recorded speech to preserve, restore, or build a unique vocal identity.

Our stories so far

Even though our journey's just begun, we've already witnessed some monumental milestones. In 2015, VocaliD raised over $129,000 on IndieGoGo to launch the development of BeSpoke voices for its first set of Trailblazers. Upon delivery, we've seen — and heard — just how much of an impact a more human, more individualized voice can really make in someone's life.
