Title: Prosody adaptation in text-to-speech synthesis
Author: Foo, Say Wei; Poh, Teng Chuan; Yeo, Huat Chye
Copyright year: 2000
Abstract: A prosody adaptation text-to-speech system based on concatenation of spoken English words is presented in this paper. To make the resulting sentences sound natural, modifications are made to the prosody of the speech units using the Time-Domain-Pitch-Synchronous- Overlap-Add method. A prosody generator is built to generate the intonation pattern for the synthesised speech. An approach of smoothing the distortion at the boundaries of the concatenated units is proposed. Listening tests show that the synthesised speech has a high level of intelligibility and naturalness.
