In this paper, we compare and combine different approaches for instrumentally predicting the perceived quality of Text-toSpeech systems. First, a Log-Likelihood is determined by comparing features extracted from synthesized speech signals with features trained on natural speech. Second, parameters are extracted which capture quality-relevant degradations of… CONTINUE READING
