TheVoice project aims to create voices for audiovisual production in the field of the creative, cultural, and entertainment industry. The facts are simple: today, the production of voices is exclusively carried out by humans in a sector almost exclusively digital. The scientific objectives of the project are to understand and reproduce the vocal palette of a professional actor for the recommendation of voice in actors databases, and the design of artificial voices that can imitate the voice of an actor. The project will create a breakdown by the realization and the industrialization of innovative speech technologies for the production of voice content. The consortium, composed of recognized laboratories and industrialists, aims to consolidate a position of excellence for "Made-in-France" research and digital technologies, and to promote the French culture all over the the world.
