Ad students created a campaign ‘BeHeard’ to help create unique vocal personas for mute people.

Students from the Miami Ad School in Madrid created a brilliant campaign titled ‘BeHeard’ for VocaliD, a voice company that creates unique vocal personas via proprietary voice blending technology. Students Luis Camacho and Daniel Zilch were the art directors while Pablo Criado Martínez worked as the copywriter.

Akin to Stephen Hawking, over ten million voiceless individuals rely on text-to-speech devices for self-expression. Yet, these said devices are expensive and do not allow people to speak with voices that reflect their age, gender or personality. Hence, VoiceiD thought of an excellent idea: crowdsource human speech to create custom digital voices.
