The mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) are frequently used as a speech parameterization in speech recognizers. Practical applications of speech recognition and dialogue systems bring sometimes a requirement to synthesize or reconstruct the speech from the saved or transmitted MFCCs. Presented paper describes an approach to the construction of a MFCC-based speech production system and discusses various possibilities of its excitation.
