This paper describes work leading from discussion of hybrid articulatory/formant synthesis [3,4]. We briefly outline the problems that we consider are facing both formant and articulatory synthesis techniques, and how we overcome these using a hybrid solution. Construction of a prototype hybrid model is discussed, the intelligibility of the resulting synthetic speech, and the benefits of this type of approach are examined.
