Artificial speech has been a dream of the humankind for centuries. To understand how the present systems work and how they have developed to their present form, a historical review may be useful. In this chapter, the history of synthesized speech from the first mechanical efforts to systems that form the basis for today's high-quality synthesizers is discussed. Some separate milestones in synthesis-related methods and techniques will also be discussed briefly. For more detailed description of speech synthesis development and history see for example Klatt (1987), Schroeder (1993), and Flanagan (1972, 1973) and references in these.

Prof. Torres′s contributions mainly include the synthesis of unsymmetric phthalocyanines and subphthalocyanines, their conjugation with carbon nanostructures (fullerenes, nanotubes and graphene), supramolecular organization in solution and condensed phases, and applications of these compounds in non-linear optics (NLO), photoinduced electron transfer, molecular photovoltaics (organic solar cells, hybrids and perovskites), and more recently in areas of nanotechnology (organization and synthesis in surfaces) and nanomedicine (photodynamic therapy, PDT, cancer and atherosclerosis, and inactivation of bacteria and viruses). Torres has published more than 500 articles, reviews and patents, and has an h-index of 74, with 14 "highly cited papers" (Thomson Reuters).
