This paper gives an overview of the design and development of an experimental restricted domain corpus-based unit selection text-to-speech (TTS) system for Hungarian. The experimental system generates weather forecasts in Hungarian. 5260 sentences were recorded creating a speech corpus containing 11 hours of continuous speech. A Hungarian speech recognizer(More)
There are various methods of providing auditory cues in human-computer user interfaces. The two basic traditional methods are the application of real-life sounds (auditory icons) and artificially generated audio signals (earcons). Recently inbetween solutions have been developed based on text-to-speech (TTS) technology. Spearcons are speeded-up versions of(More)
Prosody generation relates to the composition of the detailed time structure of continuous speech and the realisation of the fundamental frequency and intensity structure, embedded in it. In our model a complex function set is described for the three prosody components for read speech. Each of the three prosody components is modelled separately by a(More)
This paper describes a project for creating an online system for studying the main formant movements of Hungarian vowels in spoken words, as a function of their sound environment. The speech material and the formant data corresponding to the vowels combined present research data for many other purposes as well. For efficient presentation of the data and to(More)
