Speech timing at different speaking rates was studied for the Slovenian language and the results were applied in the two level duration prediction model in the Slovenian text-to-speech system S5 . In order to provide the synthesiser with the possibility to pronounce input text with several speaking rates, tests were made to study the impact of speaking rate on syllable duration and duration of individual phonemes and phoneme groups for the Slovenian language.
