A Unified Approach for Speech Synthesis and Speech Recognition Using Stochastic Markov Graphs

With the progress of speech synthesis towards the development of complete TTS systems, the databases of speech synthesizers obtain more and more similarity with databases of speech recognizers. This offers new possibilities in combining systems for speech synthesis and recognition. In a new project, we are developing a speech dialogue system with the synthesis and recognition components using unified databases. In this paper, we describe the aim of the project, the framework of the system and first results at the acoustic and the word level.
