Eighth ISCA Workshop on Speech Synthesis
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
MAGE enables the reactive and continuous models modification in the HMMbased speech synthesis framework. Here, we present our first prototype system for extended interpolation applied for interactive accent control. Available accent models for American, Canadian and British English are manipulated in realtime by means of a gesturally controlled interactive geographical map. The accent interpolation is applied to one gender at a time, but the user is able to reactive alter between genders, while controlling the speakers to be interpolated at a time. Index Terms: speech synthesis, reactive, dialect, interpolation
