Exploiting Phone-Class Specific Landmarks for Refinement of Segment Boundaries in TTS Databases

Abstract

High accuracy speech segmentation methods invariably depend on manually labelled data. However under-resourced languages do not have annotated speech corpora required for training these segmentors. In this paper we propose a boundary refinement technique which uses knowledge of phone-class specific subband energy events, in place of manual labels, to guide… (More)
