Adobe Voco

Adobe Voco is an audio editing and generating prototype software by Adobe that enables novel editing and generation of audio.


As input the program takes approximately 20 minutes of the desired target's speech and after that it can generate sound-alike voice with even phonemes that were not present in the target example material. The software obviously poses ethical concerns as it allows manipulation of a voice recording to say anything desired. With the introduction of Adobe Voco and the similarly capable WaveNet, produced by DeepMind, the speech synthesis is verging on being completely indistinguishable from a real human's voice creating huge ethical concerns. Adobe says Adobe Voco will lower the cost of audio production.
