The COVIDvoice Project

The COVIDvoice Project is developing a software tool to screen for COVID-19 just by listening to a person's voice! People will be able to speak into an app and know immediately if they do or do not have COVID. This will save lives, and will be a game changer as we work to bring our schools and communities back together safely.

We need your help! It only takes 30 seconds to do your part and record your voice sample. Then come back regularly to share additional voice samples. If you choose to sign up for a profile, your repeated samples will provide even more effective algorithms.

Spread the word, share this page, and share your voice so we can Crush COVID!

The COVIDvoice Project is a public-private partnership, bringing together the brightest minds from the fields of AI, voice research, medicine, psychology, and technology.

We have an algorithm that can check for COVID-19, just by listening for specific changes in your voice. Voice changes come from the way the virus affects your body’s speech systems.

To take this from the prototype to an actual COVID screening tool, we have a lot of research to do. And that’s where you come in.

Please provide us with voice samples, as often as you want…every week, every day, or even multiple times a day! We will use all those samples strictly for research purposes.

Members of the public, plus students and staff from partner colleges, universities, and other organizations are confidentially sharing their voice samples and COVID-19 test results to this research project, to Crush COVID!

When we finalize our voice-based COVID screening tool, it will be available at no cost to schools, colleges, universities, daycares, community organizations, clubs, associations, amateur sports organizations, churches and houses of worship...anywhere in the world. We need to get our communities back together, safely.

The Science

Infections affect many systems in your body, including your lungs, vocal cords, and even neural signals from your brain. All these systems are involved in speech, so COVID can affect your voice in specific ways. Detecting those subtle voice changes can identify who may have contracted the infection.

The Technology

With the right kinds of data, and some very clever AI methods, we can build models that analyze voice samples and determine if a person is likely to have been infected. All with just your voice!

Technology development is being led by BRAVE Innovations ( with technical support from the Applied Bioinformatics Laboratory (

How You Can Help

Share your voice, Crush COVID. Provide confidential voice samples as often as you can.

If you don’t have COVID, that’s obviously great. We need you to share your voice!

If you have tested positive, we also need you to share your voice samples. And lots of them!

If you have recovered from a COVID infection, you, too, can share your voice to Crush COVID.

If you sign up and sign in when you provide your samples, we can show you your voiceprint, and monitor your voiceprint for changes.

Share the News!

This is a numbers game. So tell your friends, neighbors, teammates, roommates, family members. They, too, can regularly share their voice to Crush COVID. The sooner we have enough volunteers who share their voice, we can Crush COVID.

Our Commitment

The COVIDvoice Project will store your voice samples, and any other information you provide, securely and safely. Your samples will only be used for research, as we work with our partners to develop a way to screen for the COVID-19 infection. Your participation in this research project is completely voluntary. If you have any questions whatsoever, you can reach out to the team.
