Please complete and submit this form to create an account with ModelTalker.org and gain access to our voice recording software or to download demo voices. Note that by using our software to upload your speech files, you are giving staff of the Speech Research Laboratory of the Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children access to your speech recordings.
Upon receipt of payment, we will provide you with a copy of the synthetic voice we generate and software that will allow you to use it on many PC or Mac computers. The voice can also be installed on most Windows-based augmentative communication devices as well as certain Android and iOS tablet AAC apps.
The information requested below is intended to allow us to communicate with you, to assist in classifying your dialect, and to help us better understand the factors that lead to optimal synthetic voice quality. We do not share this information with any external entities. Please fill out the registration form as completely as you can.
Note: This form should be completed by the person who will be recording or receiving a voice since it is that person who must agree to our terms.
