Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For a machine to convert text into sounds that humans can understand as speech requires an enormous range of components, from abstract analysis of discourse structure to synthesis and modulation of the acoustic output. Work in the field is thus inherently interdisciplinary, involving linguistics, computer science, acoustics, and psychology.This collection of articles by leading researchers in each of the fields involved in text-to-speech synthesis provides a picture of recent work in laboratories throughout the world and of the problems and challenges that remain. By providing samples of synthesized speech as well as video demonstrations for several of the synthesizers discussed, the book will also allow the reader to judge what all the work adds up to — that is, how good is the synthetic speech we can now produce?Topics covered include:> Signal processing and source modeling> Linguistic analysis> Articulatory synthesis and visual speech> Concatenative synthesis and automated segmentation> Prosodic analysis of natural speech> Synthesis of prosody> Evaluation and perception> Systems and applicationsThe CD-ROM included with the book is configured to work with Macintosh(R), UNIX, and Windows(R) operating systems; it contains the full text of the book as well as the samples and demonstrations.
