11 categories, hundreds of applications received from top global and local enterprises, intense judging rounds: the inaugural Gitex Awards celebrated industry disruptors and technology leaders at the forefront of the digital transformation. Acapela is part of it with its voice banking solution, ‘my-own-voice’!
“Gitex Awards recognise the technological achievements and ambitions of global companies, rewarding the end-users aka disruptors that have implemented the most ground breaking IT initiatives and solutions. At Acapela we are proud and grateful to see our work done on voice replacement recognized”, says Nawfal Tounsi, Senior Sales Manager at Acapela Group.
‘My-own-voice’ offers end users the possibility to keep speaking and communicating, by using a reproduction of their own voice, synthetically recreated to support maintenance of identity. An essential part for individuals diagnosed with speech or language disorders – resulting from ALS or other conditions such as aphasia, dysarthria or apraxia.
My-own-voice’ is a web service designed to make it easy for anyone to create a synthetic voice. The service can be used without any particular knowledge and equipment, besides a computer, a headset and an internet connection.
A strong network of partners to serve the end user
“Acapela my-own-voice was initially released in 2015. Since then, Acapela has gathered feedback from patients, built strong relationships and partnerships with vendors, clinics and other institutions in order to provide the community with the best service and experience. We will continue to work this way and enrich the portfolio to reach even more people that may benefit from our solution, adds Nicolas Mazars, Acapela Inclusive Business Unit Manager.
