Once up on a time…

… Sometimes I do things and never think about them anymore. I heard a podcast the other day on Itunes and in that music it sounded like my voice. The person had a similar voice, enough to sound the same as mine. I thought about it some more… and remembered what I did. When I was a student in the 1990’s I participated in a research project. They gathered voices from all over Sweden, systems for voice recognition. The voices where collected from all over Sweden to make the systems understand all dialects so blind people could have a voice for computerised stuff. The sound surely sounds like me, I have listened to the podcast a couple of times. I am wondering, if it perhaps is my voice? I had totally forgotten about it. It could just be someone with a similar voice, but the other option is possible. Since my memory lacks, I don’t remember what institution or company that I gave my voice to. I actually don’t. It is somewhat funny that people can use my voice to do i.e. music. Haha. Very funny. I hope that wasn’t what it was used for though. As I understood it would be used as handicap tools and automated systems, so you only need to talk to the computer/phone etcetera.
