A Thematicity-Based Prosody Enrichment Tool for CTS

Mónica Domínguez, Mireia Farrús, Leo Wanner


This paper presents a demonstration of a stochastic prosody tool for enrichment of synthesized speech using SSML prosody tags applied over hierarchical thematicity spans in the context of a CTS application. The motivation for using hierarchical thematicity is exemplified, together with the capabilities of the module to generate a variety of SSML prosody tags within a controlled range of values depending on the input thematicity label.
