Xiaomi, recently unveiled its latest application of advanced algorithms and self-developed speech technology to the accessibility field. The spontaneous style Text-To-Speech technology, which is developed by Xiaomi AI Lab, is used to generate a unique and customized voice for a user with speech disorders.
Users can now communicate with others by using “his own voice”, instead of a typical monotonous electronic voice. As a part of the “Own My Voice” pre-research project led by the Xiaomi Technical Committee, the project team recruited more than 200 volunteers within Xiaomi to donate their voices. They used the voiceprint matching algorithm to match the features of volunteers’ donated voices with those of the recipient’s voice. Through this approach, they found the most suitable voice as the basic sound of voice reference for the recipient. In consideration of personalization and privacy protection, the chosen real voice was manipulated with complex acoustic modification to form a new and original sound of voice.
Next, they used spontaneous style Text-To-Speech technology to train AI models, making this new voice gradually gain a natural rhythm and intonation that can truthfully express the emotion and the tone of a human. The “Own My Voice” project combines a variety of most advanced algorithms with Xiaomi’s self-developed speech technology to ensure the specificity, safety, and high genuineness of the synthesized voice, creating a new idea on customized speech synthesis for users with speech disorders.
