This paper deals with basic principles for projecting and building of speech synthesizer for Macedonian language, based on concatenation of speech segments. The structure of general speech synthesis system is described and there are details about the specific features of Macedonian language important for the speech synthesis, like sound and vowel system and(More)
This paper presents a cross-language development method for speech recognition and synthesis applications for Macedonian language. Unified system for speech recognition and synthesis trained on German language data was used for acoustic model bootstrapping and adaptation. Both knowledge-based and data-driven approaches for source and target language phoneme(More)

The present paper investigates the automatic detection of word-initial glottalization phenomena (glottal stops and creaky voice) in German-accented English by means of HMMs. Glottalization of word-initial vowels can be very frequent in German-accented English, as well as in German. Detection and classification of glottalization phenomena is useful in order(More)
