This research aims to construct a high-quality Japanese TTS (Text-to-Speech) system that has high flexibility in treating prosody. Many TTS systems have implemented a prosody control system but such systems have been fundamentally designed to output speech with a standard pitch and speech rate. In this study, we employ a unit selectionconcatenation method(More)
Our reasearch goal is to construct a Japanese TTS (Text-to-Speech) system that can output various kinds of prosody. Since such synthetic speech is useful for a practical use, many TTS systems have implemented global prosodic control processing. But fundamentally they're designed to output speech with standard pitch and speech rate. We discuss synthesis(More)
A spherical motor called as the 14-12 spherical motor has been developed. The motor rotates around two kinds of rotation axes and totally six rotation axes. The previous studies presented its structure, working principle of rotation by five-phase alternative currents (ACs), and experimental evaluation results of rotation torque and cogging torque around(More)
