The HMM synthesis algorithm of an embedded unified speech recognizer and synthesizer

Guntram Strecha, Matthias Wolff, Frank Duckhorn, Sören Wittenberg, Constanze Tschöpe

In this paper we present an embedded unified speech recognizer and synthesizer using identical, speaker independent Hidden- Markov-Models. The system was prototypically realized on a signal processor extended by a field programmable gate array. In a first section we will give a brief overview of the system. The main part of the paper deals with a specially designed unit based HMM synthesis algorithm. In a last section we state the results of an informal listening evaluation of the speech synthesizer.
