Welcome to SPEAK:UNIQUE
A University of Edinburgh research project
Your voice is more than just a means to communicate, it is part of your identity, as unique as your fingerprint.
At Speak:Unique we understand this.
The ultimate ambition of this research project is for people to be able to use communication aids that speak for them in their own voice.
This multidisciplinary project is a team effort, with clinical researchers from the Euan MacDonald Centre for Motor Neurone Disease Research working with speech scientists at the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Speech Technology Research.
