Construction of letter to sound (LTS) conversion systems in Farsi language is a difficult task, and because of the omission of some vowels in Farsi orthography, these systems in general have low efficiencies. In this paper, the structure of a letter to sound system, having a three-layers architecture, has been presented. The first layer is rule-based, and(More)
High accuracy phonetic segmentation is critical to achieve good quality in concatenative speech synthesis. However, the processing and inspection of a large amount of recorded speech will become a labor-intensive and error-prone job. In this paper, a post-refining method based on support vector machines (SVMs), is proposed for auto-segmentation of speech(More)
