Join Cost for Unit Selection Speech Synthesis
(The University of Edinburgh. College of Science and Engineering. School of Informatics, 2004-07)
Undoubtedly, state-of-the-art unit selection-based concatenative speech systems produce very high quality synthetic speech. this is due to a large speech database containing many instances of each speech unit, with a varied ...
Concept-to-speech synthesis by phonological structure matching
(The Royal Society, 2000-04-15)
This paper presents a new way of generating synthetic-speech waveforms from a linguistic description. The algorithm is presented as a proposed solution to the speech-generation problem in a concept-to-speech system. Off-line, ...
Subjective Evaluation of Join Cost and Smoothing Methods for Unit Selection Speech Synthesis
(IEEE Signal Processing Society Press, 2005)
In unit selection-based concatenative speech synthesis, join cost (also known as concatenation cost), which measures how well two units can be joined together, is one of the main criteria for selecting appropriate units ...
