    • Generating fundamental frequency contours for speech synthesis in Yorùbá 

      Van Niekerk, Daniël R.; Barnard, Etienne (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, Daniël 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 ...
