Here's What Roger Ebert's New "Voice" Sounds Like

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2010 1:29PM
Roger Ebert appeared on 'Oprah' today (with his wife Chaz) and he debuted his new "voice." CereProc took commentary tracks that Ebert did for various DVDs and created a voice for Ebert that sounds like his and not just a generic computerized voice.

This is rather amazing. I continue to be impressed by how Ebert is living his life.

I've been a fan of Roger Ebert's my entire life. Grew up watching him and Gene Siskel review movies on PBS. I'm spending my more seasoned years reading his blog and reviews online. I never thought I'd hear him speak again, but I got goosebumps just hearing how well the "beta" version of his voice sounds. I can't wait until the final, fully-polished version arrives, but I'm sad to hear that he's not going to use it to return to full-time televised movie reviews.

Any Roger is good Roger, though!

If you'd like to talk about Roger's voice or his movie reviews or this appearance on Oprah, that's great, but we're going to delete any comments that try to get a "liberal vs. conservative" argument going. Thanks.

Wow, I read the Esquire piece last week, and I didn't think they would be done with the software for a little while longer. I think they did an amazing job capturing Roger's voice.
