    That's helpful John D would you be able to give a ballpark figure for the voice repair? No worries if you can't and it probably depends on time taken, but tens, low hundreds?? xx

    Sarah. Are you using Predictable? Assume you have played around with the Acapela settings. Acapela might be able to improve it. Also you could try Speak Unique who have a voice repair service which I used. Ask Acapela to send you the original voice recording and then forward it to SU who will not charge until you’re happy with it. MNDA’s Richard Cave will help you with this if needed. I actually use both recordings.

    First time posting and would love some
    advice. My mum was diagnosed with MND a year ago. We voice banked early as everyone said this was a good idea. Mum this week got her assistive technology device and we downloaded her voice. She was so excited to get her voice back but unfortunately it doesn’t sound anything like her!
    Does anyone have any advice?
    We used acapela.

    Thanks in advance,

    Could the SALT team help by contacting Acapela? My banked voice sounds a bit like me...not 100%...I just thought better than nothing. I had thought about using my eldest daughters voice as we often have been mistaken for each other on the phone... If needed.
    Good luck😉

    Hi I also didn't rate my voice. I'm interested also on anyone's ideas but I think its either that or a new voice. Hard either way re loosing our voice.
