Somehow this seems like a risky and also strange little project. They copied the voice box of this mummy, reconstructed it using 3D printing, and have used that to create sound. Now they’re working on recreating things he would have said.

Why on earth would someone do this? Hopefully this doesn’t open up any creepy and undesired doors to another plane or send a phone call to some aliens somewhere. Seriously it seems like an awfully strange concept, and of all the models for trying out this technology, why a mummy? Why not a recently deceased person? Of course there are ethics involved. Perhaps they figured they have this individual’s consent because of the explicit wishes to be heard after death.

Very odd. And it’s not like they have any way to verify accuracy of the voice they’ve come up with.

Also I imagine this would allow those who have lost their voice or are born mute to potentially have their own through this same mechanism. Depending on the integrity of the anatomical structures.

Does it speak Egyptian and does it have a regional accent maybe he spoke with a lisp?

It's a great experiment for all the reasons you site. There are other variables to consider when thinking about actual speech.

Without having been trained by decades of listening to deep-voiced radio announcers as a guide, maybe he had a fairly high, nasal voice like an American midwesterner (Abraham Lincoln).

As long as he can utter those old-timey curses then it's all good.

Impossible to verify their results. Did they account for his accent? Speech is hugely influenced by culture, of course they’ve accounted for this as well?
