Objective distance measures for assessing concatenative speech synthesis

  title={Objective distance measures for assessing concatenative speech synthesis},
  author={Jing-Dong Chen and Nick Campbell},
Several di erent acoustic transforms of the speech signal are compared for use in the assessment and evaluation of concatenative speech synthesis. The transforms tested include LPC, LSP, MFCC, bispectrum, Mellin transform of the log spectrum, WignerVille distribution (WVD), etc. The computed distances between a synthesised utterance and a naturally spoken version of the same sentence are compared by correlation with perceptually-based scores obtained from a MOS evaluation. The results show that… CONTINUE READING
