Hello my name is Shion i am the acting CEO of C-Media S.A.G this is the thread were anyone can ask questions join the team or simply lend their support to the program. C-Media was started in 1998 by my two college roommates and me. The mission of the program was to develop a means to enable persons that are unable to speak due to illness or other cause to have a realistic voice that talks normally with a simple input interface that is text based. In March of 2000, i did my thesis papers on this very thing.
In 2004, i met 13-year-old Chihaya mitutoyo and her sister Haruka. Chihaya was born unable to speak her sister wanted to find a way to give her a voice. With the help of their mother who at the time was an employee of Crypton future media, we managed to begin this project in Ernest.
Now 8 years later i am still working with Chihaya to bring this to pass along the way we have been joined by many gifted and influential people. Some are software developers others are media specialist and some are even singers. We lost our most active member in august of 2010 when chihaya’s little sister Haruka passed away after succumbing to a heart defect that until only a few weeks before her death was not diagnosed.
She gave us the one key to move forward, that is the will to defy all opposition and do what we believe in regardless of the cost. This common thread, which she gave us still, drives us all to this day. It is this belief that has given us the courage to do what we are now doing. As a service to all who have no voice we will speak, we will fight until we no longer exist as a team to bring the technology and the voice to the vocally silent of this world. It is our duty to humanity to give these people a voice of their own.
Sincerely
しおん北九州

Hi Everyone, CMedia
Those are wonderful design goals bringing voices both speaking and singing to those who do not have voices.

My best friend lost her voice box and her tongue due to a sudden cancer and later her life. She had to use one of those terrible sounding robot text to speech things and after she could not even type she just beeped once for yes and two for know.

My Masters Degree is in using Technology for Learning and Distance Learning. A lot of computer software, so much design time is spent on programming the software that the user interface, is left till last.

Really the user interface should be designed on paper first and then in some kind of desktop publishing programs and graphics programs.

Then one can look at the design book and the screenshots of the user interface and say, ok can we do this and make it fun and easy to do.

I would love as a singer and a singing teacher to make suggestions on the user interface of a new Vocaloid. And also to beta test the software sometime.

I like a lot of things about Vocaloid 1 and Vocaloid 2, but their are a lot of simple improvements that would really make Vocaloid fun and easier to use.

Happy Vocaloid Singing
