Text-to-phoneme (TTP) mapping is a preliminary step in text-to-speech synthesis and it affects the naturalness and understandability of synthetic speech. In this paper, we propose a hybrid neural network/rule based system for bilingual text-to-phoneme mapping. Our system uses three neural networks and a simple rule to perform the phoneme transcription. The(More)
In this paper, the problem of language identification from a written text is addressed. The problem is connected to text-to-phoneme mapping application where the letters of a written text must be translated into their corresponding phonemes. When the words of the written text belong only to a single known language, transcription of the written letters into(More)
In this paper we address the problem of language identification from a written text. This topic belongs to a wider area of text-to-phoneme mapping where the letters of a written text must be translated into their corresponding phonemes. In the context of text-to-phoneme mapping if the words of the written text belong to a single known language,(More)
