Machine Tears Apart And Rebuilds Speech (Sep, 1939)

Machine Tears Apart And Rebuilds Speech
A MACHINE that tears speech to pieces and remakes it in new patterns has been developed. Use of these machines for sending and receiving telephone messages would make wire-tapping impossible, unless the wiretapper had a machine with which to listen. Anyone listening with an ordinary receiver to a call made through the machine would hear only unintelligible sounds. Other possible uses for the machine are the making of voices for animated cartoons and in improving newsreel vocal accompaniment where excitement might make parts difficult to understand.
