Automatic modeling of duration in a Spanish text-to-speech system using neural networks

Abstract

Accurate prediction of segmental duration from text in a textto-speech system is difficult for several reasons. One specially relevant is the great quantity of contextual factors that affect timing and how to model them. There are many parameters that affect duration, but not all of them are always relevant. We present a complete environment in which to… (More)
