Image credit : Macworld Apple announced Tuesday that users of iPhones and iPads will soon be able to hear their devices speak in their own voices. The planned "Personal Voice" function will provide users with randomly generated text suggestions to produce 15 minutes of audio. There will also be a brand-new feature called "Live Speech" that enables users to save frequently used phrases and type in custom phrases for the device to utter during phone and FaceTime calls or in-person interactions. In order to develop the voice on the device itself rather than elsewhere, Apple claims it will employ machine learning, a sort of AI, making the data more secure and private. It may appear odd at first, but it's actually a part of the company's most recent accessibility initiative. Apple cited illnesses like ALS as ones where people can lose their capacity to talk.

In the news release, Team Gleason board member Philip Green, whose voice has considerably changed since receiving an ALS diagnosis, stated: "At the end of the day, the most important thing is being able to communicate with friends and family."

"If you can tell them you love them, in a voice that sounds like you, it makes all the difference in the world," he added.

Given that Siri is already well-known to iPhone consumers, Apple has previously entered the AI speech industry. To comprehend what individuals are saying, it employs machine learning.
