PR & Comms
Mar 2022 — Present (4 mos)
Incredible AI technology that allows people to speak different languages in their own voice. An amazing tool that can help people with voice disabilities to talk again and their own voice again. Emmy-Award winning technology that made voice cloning for Mandalorian and Boba Fett movies. Happy to announce, I'm joining Respeecher team — a proud AI startup that was born in Ukraine.
