This paper describes an HMM-based speech synthesis system that utilizes glottal inverse filtering for generating natural sounding synthetic speech. In the proposed system, speech is first parametrized into spectral and excitation features using a glottal inverse filtering based method. The parameters are fed into an HMM system for training and then generated from the trained HMM according to text input. Glottal flow pulses extracted from real speech are used as a voice source, and the voice… CONTINUE READING
