Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD OF TEMPLATING SPECIFIC HUMAN VOICES
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE POUR CREER DES MODELES DE VOIX HUMAINES DETERMINEES
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods are disclosed to capture (103) an enabling portion of a voice and then create a voice template (127) or profile signal which may be combined at a later time with noise of another origin to reconstitute the original voice. Such reconstituted voice may then be used to speak any form or content provided via digital input thereto, and to say content which was not spoken in an original form by the original voice. Products and processes for online use are disclosed, as are certain business methods and industry applications.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés destinés à capturer (103) une partie de validation d'une voix puis à créer un modèle de voix (127) ou un signal de profil qui peuvent être combinés à un moment ultérieur avec du bruit d'origine étrangère afin de reconstituer la voix d'origine. Cette voix reconstituée peut ensuite être utilisée pour dire n'importe quelle forme ou n'importe quel contenu fourni sous forme d'entrée numérique et pour dire un contenu qui n'a pas été dit sous sa forme d'origine par la voix d'origine. L'invention concerne aussi des produits et procédés pour l'utilisation en ligne ainsi que certaines applications commerciales et industrielles.
