A year ago at RootsTech MyHeritage revealed animation of family photographs. Some thought it creepy, even scary.
This year they upped their game. With LiveStory there’s not only movement of facial features, it speaks synchronized with a text. Initially, it uses information drawn from a family tree you have on MyHeritage. I found that a rather dull recitation of facts, and it sometimes jumped to conclusions, say that the marriage was happy. However, you can edit the text and change the voice. What you can’t change is pronunciation. Ypres was mispronounced, just as did the BEF soldiers. Passchendaele was a particular challenge.
See the MyHeritage demo here.
I’ve been trying it and hope to have my own demo shortly.
