Sixth International Conference on Spoken Language Processing
This work shows the results of the conducted measures to obtain duration models that can get up in a Spanish synthesis system like Festival. In addition, The characteristics of a corpora used in the experimentation are described too. This work shows the results obtained by experimenting with isolated phonemes, as well as phonemes with left context, right context and both. Finally, there is a discussion on the results that illustrate the improvements obtained in the synthesis system using the new models of duration and some other works to future also set out.
