A machine learning approach to Swedish word pronunciation

Hanna Lindgren, Jessica Granberg

This study focuses on word pronunciation in Text-to-Speech systems for Swedish. The purpose is to investigate whether machine learning techniques match knowledge-based systems in Swedish word pronunciation. The experiments show a maximum grapheme accuracy of just over 97%, and word accuracies from 67.0% for word pronunciation excluding stress assignment, which compares favourably to existing knowledgebased state-of-the-art systems.
