Generating emotional speech with a concatenative synthesizer

  title={Generating emotional speech with a concatenative synthesizer},
  author={Erhard Rank and Hannes Pirker},
We describe the attempt to synthesize emotional speech with a concatenative speech synthesizer using a parameter space c overing not only f0, duration and amplitude, but also voice quali ty parameters, spectral energy distribution, harmonics-tonoise ratio, and articulatory precision. The application of these e xtended parameter set offers the possibility to combine the high seg mental quality of concatenative synthesis with a wider range of con trol settings needed for the synthesis of natural… CONTINUE READING
