Fortiphone device and mouthpiece, model number is not clear. Part of BBC Radiophonic Workshop collection.

This instrument uses a false upper palate, fitted with a transistor buzzer, to take over the duties of the human larynx. Sound produced by the buzzer or artificial voice is modulated by the movement of the lips and mouth, producing clearly intelligible words. It was originally designed by a dental surgeon.
