Intel, the company behind the innovative software that allows Cambridge astrophysicist Stephen Hawking to speak, has released the program online so that others can benefit from the system.

  • Hawking’s speech software was posted on code-sharing website GitHub
  • The software can now help others with limited movement to communicate
  • The astrophysicist uses his cheek muscles as an input for the system
  • A major update last year allowed Stephen Hawking to write ten times quicker while retaining his distinctive voice 


The move by Intel, the company behind the innovative software, will allow developers to tinker with the technology to help people suffering from motor neurone disease and other syndromes that make communication a challenge.
