Calling all voices… for a voice study
A few months ago, I learned about a study sponsored by the nonprofit group EverythingALS that aimed to create a high-quality database of speech data to develop enhanced voice recognition tools that improve quality of life for ALS patients – – plus add to research on ALS-related dysarthria. (a.k.a “ALS voice”)
I wrote about it in: Adding My Voice to a Valuable Study
I’ll admit I’m taking advantage of the study to add to my weekly practice of speaking out loud. These sessions are helping me learn to better manage and hopefully save what little voice I have. But I’m also happy to contribute my “ALS voice” to help AI software learn to better understand me and my fellow pALS.
Do you have a problem with AI or voice-activated devices understanding you? What are your workarounds? Would you consider joining this voice study?
