A restricted domain text-to-speech system oriented to a weather forecast application is presented. This TTS system is embedded in a multimedia interactive service accessible from different media, such as TV, Internet and mobile devices. The requirements of this application give rise to several particularities in the design and implementation of the TTS system, which are discussed throughout this paper. Several tests have been conducted to analyze the TTS system in terms of performance and speech quality.
