Like quite a few folks I was quite moved by the recent Esquire article on Roger Ebert. On some level to say I was struck dumb might sound like a bad pun, but I certainly don't intend it that way. In the article it was discussed how Ebert, who hasn't been able to speak since surgery to remove his jaw, was going to experiment with software to try and be able to communicate via technology with his own voice.
It looks like the experiment is working. He's using CereProc, which took hours of samples of Ebert's voice from the hours of TV footage of his film reviewing and have created what you will hear in the video.
Amazing on so many levels.
