This is a link post Virtual recreation of the Elephant Man.
3D scans of Merrick's skeleton were used to recreate the conditions that would have affected his speech. An actor was then put under the same conditions with prosthetics and mandibular devices, to get the truest approximation of what he actually sounded like.

The poem he's reading is one that he used to end his letters with.

"I know my form is something odd

but blaming me is blaming god

could I create myself anew

I would not fail in pleasing you

if I could reach from pole to pole

or grasp the ocean with a span

I would be measured by the soul

the minds the standard of the man
