In this paper, a framework for integrated synthesis of Mandarin, Min-nan, and Hakka speech is proposed. To show its feasibility, an initial integrated system has been built as well. Through integration, a model only trained with Min-nan sentences is used to generate pitch-contours for all three languages, same rules are used to generate syllable duration and amplitude values, and the same program module implementing the method, TIPW, is used to synthesize the three languages’ speech waveforms… CONTINUE READING
