Whispp’s speech technology on smartphones and computers converts whispered speech and vocal cord-impaired speech into a person’s natural voice in real-time, with the intonation and emotion the speaker intends. The Whispp mobile app enables users to make themselves heard with their smartphone, everywhere and in every conversation, even with background noise. Users maintain their freedom of movement because their conversational partner(s) hear them via wireless earbuds or a wireless speaker.
The technology also works for (non-patient) consumers who want or need to speak quietly on a phone or video conference and want to keep their conversation private or not disturb others around them.
“Voice disorders are invisible and are a sometimes overlooked disability that can have a significant impact on a person’s life and happiness,” said founder and CEO Joris Castermans. “Our proprietary AI-powered speech technology will help make millions of people more comfortable and confident, and create a society that is more inclusive for people who deal with speech issues.”
Whispp is interested in meeting press, potential investors, speech therapists, language pathologists, ENT doctors, U.S. patient organizations related to speech disorders, resellers and distributors of assistive technology and governmental organizations related to disabilities, inclusion and diversity.
Founded in 2018 in Leiden, Netherlands, Whispp’s mission is to empower millions of people who suffer from a voice disorder or stutter severely. Whispp’s speech technology converts whispered speech and vocal cord impaired speech into a person’s natural voice, with the intended intonation and emotion, in real time. For (non-patient) consumers Whispp enables phone and video calls with more privacy, without disturbing the people around them. Visit their website at https://whispp.com.
