Bionic Larynx sounds more Natural

Scientists at Western Sydney University in Australia have demonstrated a groundbreaking non-invasive artificial larynx that could be used to give a voice back to patients around the world, whose voice boxes have been removed as a result of cancer.
It doesn’t require invasive surgical implantation, eliminating the risk of infection. It utilizes a person’s own respiratory system to work by converting the breath to a humming sound. Then it is converted to speech through the movement of the user’s lips and tongue.
The result is an artificial voice box that can carry out the function of the larynx without degraded speech or associated health risks. An amazing advance that promises enormous benefits in the future!
