This paper discusses the use of two kinds of biological signals for ultimate control of a voice synthesizer; the acoustic signal of the human voice itself and myoelectric (EMG) signals produced by one muscle or a group of muscles. The practical end of the investigations is the development of speech prostheses for persons who cannot command their vocal tracts to produce the sound patterns acceptable as speech.
