When film critic Roger Ebert lost his lower jaw to cancer, he lost the ability to eat and speak. But he did not lose his voice. In a gripping TED2011 talk, Ebert spoke with the help of a computer voice, two close friends and his wife Chaz, about how the Internet and digital revolution gave him his voice back.

  • What does this talk demonstrate about gestures and facial expressions?

Share what you learned that can make a difference the next time you step up to speak.
