    • Automatic speech segmentation with limited data 

      Van Niekerk, Daniel Rudolph (North-West University, 2009)
      The rapid development of corpus-based speech systems such as concatenative synthesis systems for under-resourced languages requires an efficient, consistent and accurate solution with regard to phonetic speech segmentation. ...
    • Generating fundamental frequency contours for speech synthesis in Yorùbá 

      Daniël R. van Niekerk; Etienne Barnard (International Speech Communication Association ( ISCA ), 2013)
      We present methods for modelling and synthesising fundamental frequency (F0) contours suitable for application in text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis of Yorùbá (an African tone language). These methods are discussed and compared ...
    • A target Approximation Intonation Model for Yorùbá TTS 

      van Niekerk, Daniel R.; Barnard, Etienne (ISCA, 2014)
      A complete intonation model based on quantitative target approximation is described for Yorùbá text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis. This model is evaluated analytically and perceptually and compared to a fundamental frequency ...
    • Tone realisation for speech synthesis of Yorùbá 

      Van Niekerk, Daniel Rudolph (North West University, 2014)
      Speech technologies such as text-to-speech synthesis (TTS) and automatic speech recognition (ASR) have recently generated much interest in the developed world as a user-interface medium to smartphones [1, 2]. However, it ...
