Google has never before had an investment program of this sort and the effort is aimed to boost small companies who have got a lead start in the industry in recent months.   The search engine is looking to make small investments into the project in a range of $1 million to $10 million.  Several larger companies have been spearheading their own programs of late with, Adobe Inc., more commonly known for its graphic and web software, developing new software called Adobe VoCo which can learn to copy anyone’s voice in 20 minutes flat.
