Roger Ebert speaks on 2 March 2010

from the Mercury News:

Film critic Roger Ebert, who lost his ability to speak after surgery for cancer, says a Scottish company has helped him regain a voice his grandchildren can recognize.
Computer programmers at a company called CereProc captured the sound of Ebert"s voice from movie commentary tracks, Ebert wrote in Sunday"s Chicago Sun-Times. He now can type what he wants to say and listeners hear a voice that sounds like him.
The new voice, which Ebert calls "Roger Jr.," will be heard predicting Oscar winners on a segment of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" airing Tuesday, March 2.
