In text-to-speech synthesis systems, the quality of the predicted prosody contours influences quality and naturalness of synthetic speech. This paper presents a new statistical model for prosody control that combines an ensemble learning technique using neural networks as base learners with feature relevance determination. This weighted neural network… CONTINUE READING
