Second ESCA/IEEE Workshop on Speech Synthesis
September 12-15, 1994
We describe the architecture of the AT&T Bell Laboratories New text-to-speech (TTS) system. The modular pipeline design of NewTTS enhances capabilities for research on TTS since it facilitates revision and replacement of modules of the system, and it makes it easy to insert into the pipeline tools that modify various TTS parameters. While we illustrate most of these points with reference to the English version of NewTTS, we will also sketch how systems for other languages are being developed within the NewTTS framework.
