Edward Herrmann, a prolific actor who narrated dozens of audiobooks, has been dead for almost a decade. But that hasn't prevented him from being the voice of several recent audiobooks.
Mr. Herrmann's latest work is generated by DeepZen Ltd., a London-based artificial-intelligence startup that was given access to the actor's past recordings with his family's permission. From that trove, DeepZen said it is able to generate any sound and intonation that Mr. Herrmann would have used if he were narrating these new books himself.
"We felt it was an amazing way to carry on his legacy," said Rory Herrmann, a Los Angeles restaurateur and Mr. Herrmann's son. NYT 7Ap23
