SpeakerToolbox: Remaking my voice…a TedTalk

When film critic Roger Ebert lost his lower jaw to cancer, he lost the ability to eat and speak. But he did not lose his voice. In a gripping TED2011 talk, Ebert spoke with the help of a computer voice, two close friends and his wife Chaz, about how the Internet and digital revolution gave him his voice back.

As you watch, consider:

  • Who is the “speaker” in this remarkable TED Talk? Why?
  • What does this talk demonstrate about gestures and facial expressions?

Share what you learned that can make a difference the next time you step up to speak.
