Abstract in different language: This paper describes the initial experiments on voice conservation of patients with laryngeal cancer in an advanced stage. The final aim is to create a speech-aid device which is able to "speak" with their former voices. Our initial work is focused on applicability of speech data from patients with an impaired vocal tract for the purposes of speech synthesis. Preliminary results indicate that appropriately selected synthesis method can successfully learn a new voice, even from speech data which is of a lower quality.
