Fuz Eller
Fuz is the main geek in charge at Euphony, Inc.  He's is a retired U.S. Air Force Airborne Cryptologic Linguist with a long list of "interesting" experiences.  Along the way, Fuz picked up a number of odd skills, excellent leadership experience, fabulous friends and a serious interest in technology, innovation and curiosity in general.  He can also say "toy boat" three times, fast.

After leaving his 20+ year Air Force career, Fuz lucked into a gig with a large Defense contractor, doing research and development.  He quickly learned this was a perfect alignment of his talents and the notion of working with wicked-smart people to solve difficult problems.  In his last six years there, he was the Principal Investigator of an advanced R&D program to develop new speech synthesis methods.

Fuz happily geeks out with audio/speech signal analysis, phonology, phonetics and investigating new ways to look at speech signal problems.  His hobbies include collecting all manner of sounds, making art out of sound spectrograms, tinkering with antique radio receivers, and cooking.
Steve Morphet
Steve is a co-inventor and continues to contribute to the project with his mad Computer Scientist skillz. With more than 20 years solving hard problems, Steve has put his Computer Engineering Ph.D. up against a number of different domain challenges.  He brought his computational intelligence expertise to the speech audio world in 2008, which contributed to novel solutions and inventions. 

Steve has filled all software roles, from software engineer / system architect to research lead.  He's also broadened his experience with mobile apps and cross-platform development.  He has a direct tie to the assistive tech space, having co-founded Enabling Tech Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that advises on technology solutions to improve the lives of people with disabilities and special needs.

Our Story
Our team started advanced research into speech synthesis in 2008.  Our grand challenge problem: develop methods for producing text to speech such that a listener wouldn't know the audio was computer generated. We'd targeted the Defense simulation space, but certain Government delays in 2013-14 meant our research funding had to be cut. Our first reaction was to worry that our work would never be put to good use. However, we also realized this was an opportunity to spin our experience into the commercial sector. Our former employer has been great about letting us take our technology with us!

We'd taken our work to the advanced demonstration level, but had several more improvements to make to our algorithms to improve intelligibility. Starting out small, we don't yet have all the resources we need to tackle that set of problems, so we've carved off a handful of things we know we handle as we get on our feet.

Where we're headed
Finishing our novel speech synthesis work is still very important to us.  As we work on our new products, we'll be fitting advances into our text-to-speech synthesis engine.  We've already developed methods to vastly reduce how much recorded speaker sample is needed, along with a very flexible means for applying numerous rhythm, stress and intonation patterns to suit many needs.  We can even make our speakers whisper!
Partners
Strong collaborations are important to us and we believe they're critical to bringing true value to our customers.  Universities, players already in the speech synthesis business and companies with current assistive and therapeutic speech technologies are welcome partners.
