With voice recognition technology becoming more common, I find this latest software worrying.

Users of Adobe Voco simply type words they want to hear into the system. The software then replaces original spoken words in an audio recording with these new words, while making them sound like the original speaker's voice. This can create an entirely new voice recording.

I worry this software will be misused in the future and could mean voice recordings are no longer trustworthy.
