The development of a microcomputer-based voice output system for English that uses prerecorded demisyllables as units of synthesis is described. With an inventory of approximately 950 demisyllables, the system is capable of producing all possible syllables and words of English. By combining these units to form continuous speech, the system can produce any(More)
An algorithm developed to determine the stress pattern of polysyllabic words in English is discussed. Stress is one determinant of word pronunciation in English, and the algorithm is an important component of a demisyllable-based text-to-speech synthesis system. The algorithm is a computationally efficient and accurate system for assigning primary stress to(More)
