Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Jamie Dupree, a radio reporter for over 30 years, lost his voice two years ago to a rare disorder called tongue protrusion dystonia that makes speaking extremely difficult. He's returning to the air for Cox Media Group with the help of Cereproc, a Scottish company that used years of his archived news reports to create a text-to-speech version of his voice. "Does the voice sound perfect? No. But it does sound like me," Dupree said. "When I type out some words -- the text-to-speech program that I use spits them out in my new Jamie Dupree 2.0 voice."

That's amazing. Very lucky of him to have enough recordings to emulate his own voice.
