A demisyllable-based text-to-speech synthesis system for English
Keywords:speech synthesis, demisyllable-based text-to-speech synthesis system, English speech, computer, computer-generated speech
AbstractSynthesis of English speech by computer can be accomplished in several different ways, depending on the size of the speech units that are used to produce voice output. The most widely used units for speech synthesis are phonemes (i.e., small speech units corresponding to individual phonetic items). An alternate method of producing computer-generated speech is to concatenate entire words of English in a method called `word-concatenation' synthesis. A third strategy, the one described in this paper, is to use intermediate-sized units corresponding to half syllables, called `demisyllables'
