Disabled groom-to-be who uses computer to talk to change 'robot voice' to Brummie accent for wedding day

A groom-to-be with cerebral palsy wants to change his ‘Dr Who robot' voice for a Brummie accent so he can say ‘I do’ on his wedding day with his local twang. Jack Wells, 21, relies on a computer system that he operates with his eyes in order to communicate, similar to the system used by the late Professor Stephen Hawking. But his current voice has a North American accent and has left Jack wanting to get back to his roots and sound like his family from Erdington, Birmingham. He is now working with his college, National Star, in Cheltenham, Glos., to search for a suitable voice donor with his native accent in time for his big day.
