Fifth ISCA ITRW on Speech Synthesis
June 14-16, 2004
In this paper, we try to describe the issues to be considered in developing a concatenative speech synthesizer for Amharic language. The complexity of the syllable structure of the language, the phonetic nature of the language and the result of the perceptual test of the synthesizer will be discussed. Comments and recommendations for further research are included.
