Accurate labeling and segmentation of the unit inventory database is of vital importance to the quality of unit selection text-to-speech synthesis. Misalignments and mismatch between the predicted and pronounced unit sequences require manual correction to achieve natural sounding synthesis. In this paper we have used a log likelihood ratio based utterance… CONTINUE READING
