This paper describes a new open source architecture for unit-selection based speech synthesis called BOSS (Bonn Open Synthesis System). It is built up modularly, with communications between modules taking place in a fixed format. This makes the addition, deletion and substitution of modules very easy. The strict separation between data and algorithms allows for the simple creation of new speech corpora for different domains and languages.
