The history of Respeecher

Respeecher started with a simple idea. Could we clone human speech and swap voices?

It sure would seem handy for filmmakers, TV producers, game developers, advertisers, podcasters, and content creators of all types.

But audio today is limited. Like many of you, we’re frustrated by the robotic voices in our video games, auto navigation systems, and the emerging text-to-speech systems.

That’s why we built something better.

Our mission is simple: help content creators use voices in new and exciting ways. Whether they want to resurrect a voice from the past, more easily record kids' voices, or just want more creative control over their project, we're here to help. We’ve partnered with Hollywood studios and top video game creators — and we're just getting started.

Our Mission

Some ethical questions about synthetic speech are easy, but others are hard. We don't just rely on our gut to tell us what is right. This set of principles guides our decision making.

  • Respeecher does not allow any deceptive uses of our technology.
  • Respeecher does not use voices without permission when this could impact the privacy of the subject or their ability to make a living. In practice, this means we will never use the voice of a private person or an actor without permission, but we do allow non-deceptive use of the voices of historical figures and politicians, such as Richard Nixon and Barack Obama.
Ethics

We're committed to ensuring that our groundbreaking technology is only used for ethical projects — and doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

How Respeecher came to life

about-us6
about-us5

We used our expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning to replicate voices and produce synthetic recordings that match perfectly to the originals. We started with Barack Obama ... and our replicated voice sounded perfect. We'd be shocked if Michelle could even tell the difference. :-)

Now we're sharing our technology with top Hollywood movie studios, video game creators, and many more businesses. They’re using our technology to create content they’ve never been able to create before — and they’re saving time and money in the process.

We know voice replication technology could be dangerous in the wrong hands, so we implemented a strict code of ethics and strong security measures. We vow to ensure that our tech is only used for positive purposes. To learn more about our commitment to ethical behavior, click here.

We’re a group of fun, positive-thinking computer programmers and software developers focused on one thing — using voices to change the future or TV, movies, game development and so much more. We’re passionate, dedicated and excited to grow. Join us!
