Google Duplex – Make calls on your behalf

Ever wanted to have a personal assistant to make calls on your behalf? Soon you can! Introducing Google Duplex, a completely automated system that places calls on your behalf, complete with a natural-sounding human voice instead of a robotic one. How good is that! It is especially valuable for people with speech impairments. We have not got any information on how it will work just yet but the steps will involve telling Google Assistant something along the lines of, “Call Chinese restaurant and make a reservation for six people Friday night at 7pm.” In saying that, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) users will hopefully be able to use it with their communication device.
