3,000 year old Egyptian mummy’s voice replicated by scientists

A mummified Egyptian priest’s wish for life after death was fulfilled by scientists as they replicated his voice with artificial vocal chords. The voice of the mummy, named Nesyamun, has been replicated as a vowel like sound and is similar to the bleat of a sheep.

Not sure how accurate it was but gotta admit this is extremely interesting. Just gotta say I freaking love science.

yeah... the fact that he sounds like a sheep and not a human is probably accurate. I'm sure that science is totally sound.

This sounds interesting but how can they be sure that is what he actually sounded like? Do the shapes of vocal tracts differ enough from human to human to be the main determining factor for how someone sounds when they talk?

Now there's a fine use of scarce resources. If the talent behind this project were focused on something socially relevant, something might get achieved. The attention this mummy got is vastly superior to what other mommies get in the U.S. health care system.
