Lucy Hawking, daughter of esteemed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, documents the history of speech synthesis for Radio 4.

Lucy explores the less-covered history of the technological phenomenon that is synthesised speech; computer generated voice aids that are used by millions across the globe, who not only have disabilities, but also use everyday software such as Siri.

Lucy Hawking covers all aspects of the history of synthesised speech - from the mechanical "speaking machine" created by inventor Wolfgang von Kempelen, to the "text-to-speech" research and audio clips curated by Dennis Klatt in the first half of the twentieth century.
