  1. Resource Description
    Many children with autism who have limited verbal abilities use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices to help them communicate with others. Often, these devices produce speech output. Necessarily, the voice of such a system does not resemble in any way the voice of the child who uses the system. The software from this project is for children who have at least some speech capability, such as saying a few isolated words. The technology performs a voice transplant of the child's natural voice onto the AAC device, so that the device's voice will sound like the child.
