An objective measure for estimating MOS of synthesized speech

  title={An objective measure for estimating MOS of synthesized speech},
  author={Min Chu and Hu Peng},
This paper proposes an average concatenative cost function as the objective measure for naturalness of synthesized speech. All its seven component-costs can be derived directly from the input text and the scripts of speech database. A formal Mean Opinion Score (MOS) experiment shows that the average concatenative cost and its seven components are all highly correlated with MOS obtained subjectively. The correlation coefficient between the objective measure and subjective measure is –0.872. The… CONTINUE READING
