Optimization of Cost Function Weights for Unit Selection Speech Synthesis Using Speech Recognition

Abstract

A well known problem in unit selection speech synthesis is designing the join and target function sub-costs and optimizing their corresponding weights so that they reflect the human listeners’ preferences. To achieve this we propose a procedure where an objective criterion for optimal speech unit selection is used. The objective criterion for tuning the… (More)
