The automatic labeling of a large speech corpus plays an important role in the development of a high-quality Text-To-Speech (TTS) synthesis system. This paper describes a method for the automatic labeling of speech signals, which mainly involves the construction of a large database for a TTS synthesis system. The main objective of the work involves the refinement of an initial estimation of phone boundaries which are provided by an alignment, based on a Hidden Markov Model. A multilayer… CONTINUE READING
