How Does Stephen Hawking Speak?

Answer

Stephen Hawking speaks using a DEC talk DTC01, which is an electronic voice synthesizer, to communicate. Hawking is said to be looking for a replacement since, aside from being obsolete, the synthesizer is both large and fragile by modern standards. Hawking is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge known for his contributions to the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity.
