Generating intonation from a mixed CART-HMM model for speech synthesis

Cédric Boidin, Olivier Boeffard

This paper proposes two algorithms for generating intonation from a mixed CART-HMM intonation model for speech synthesis. Based either on a Viterbi search or on the Expectation-Maximization algorithm, the two generation algorithms are analyzed in terms of likelihood and F0 Root Mean Square Error. Listening tests are performed to subjectively evaluate the quality of the generated intonation.
