Pronunciation of proper names is known to be a difficult problem, but one of great practical importance for both speech synthesis and speech recognition. Recently a few data-driven grapheme-to-phoneme conversion techniques have been proposed to tackle this problem. In this paper we apply the joint n-gram model for bi-directional grapheme-to-phoneme conversion, which has already been shown to achieve excellent results on general tasks, to the more specific task of converting between name… CONTINUE READING
