Apple's 'Personal Voice on iPhone' Can Recreate Your Voice So It's Never Lost [Video]

Apple has shared a new video illustrating how the new 'Personal Voice' feature on iPhone can be used to recreate your own voice, so it's never lost.

Personal Voice is available in iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma. With Personal Voice, users at risk of speech loss can create a voice that sounds like them by following a series of text prompts to capture 15 minutes of audio.




Today, Apple is highlighting the feature with assistance from Tristram Ingham, a New Zealand-native with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD).

"Disability communities are very mindful of proxy voices speaking on our behalf," Ingham says. "Historically, providers have spoken for disabled people, family have spoken for disabled people. If technology can allow a voice to be preserved and maintained, that's autonomy, that's self-determination."

Ingham created his Personal Voice for Apple's "The Lost Voice," in which he uses his iPhone to read aloud a new children's book of the same name created for International Day of Persons with Disabilities. When he tried the feature for the first time, Ingham was surprised to find how easy it was to create, and how much it sounded like him.


"It was really straightforward, I was quite relieved," he says, remarking on the voice coming from his iPhone: "I'm really pleased to hear it in my voice with my style of speaking, rather than an American voice, or an Australian voice or a U.K. voice."
