A target Approximation Intonation Model for Yorùbá TTS
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 ...
Generating fundamental frequency contours for speech synthesis in Yorùbá
(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 ...
Tone realisation in a Yorùbá speech recognition corpus
We investigate the acoustic realisation of tone in short continuous utterances in Yorùbá. Fundamental frequency (F0) contours are extracted for automatically aligned syllables from a speech corpus of 33 speakers collected ...
