Silicon Valley is looking for help in the Missoula Valley. Google recently advertised a new app feature. An application that helps people with disabilities who have difficulty speaking. The app uses facial recognition software to allow people to communicate using their eyes. It’s called “Looking to Talk”.
According to Google
With the app, people just look left, right, or up to quickly select what they want to say from a list of phrases. Perhaps my favorite feature is the ability to customize words and phrases – it lets people share their authentic voice. Gaze sensitivity settings can be adjusted and all data is private and never leaves the phone.
This greatly increases the ability of people who are non-verbal or have speech and motor impairments to communicate.
Recently, Google turned to a local Missoula recording studio to help with advertising. The Vault Recording Studio is a state-of-the-art recording studio located in downtown Missoula. Located in the basement of the historic Higgins Building.
Recording studio Vault has cut the audio needed to complete Google’s emotional new ad.
Although the vault has only been open for a short time, they have seen many big names walk through its doors. Including Oscar winner JK Simmons. JK Simmons stopped by to record audio narration for his latest film ‘National Champions’.

The Vault Recording Studio provides studio time for anyone who wants to record. Whether you want a place to record your podcast. Or cut the narration for an upcoming movie or commercial. Email [email protected] for details.
