A vocoder-based speech synthesis system, named WORLD, was developed in an effort to improve the sound quality of realtime applications using speech. [...] Key Method It consists of three analysis algorithms and one synthesis algorithm proposed in our previous research. The effectiveness of the system was evaluated by comparing its output with against natural speech including consonants. Its processing speed was also compared with those of conventional systems. The results showed that WORLD was superior to the…Expand
