Performative Statistical Parametric Speech Synthesis Applied To Interactive Designs (2014)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
This dissertation introduces interactive designs in the context of statistical parametric synthesis. The objective is to develop methods and designs that enrich the Human-Computer Interaction by enabling computers (or other devices) to have more expressive and adjustable voices. First, we tackle the problem of interactive controls and present a novel method for performative HMM-based synthesis (pHTS). Second, we apply interpolation methods, initially developed for the traditional HMM-based speech synthesis system, in the interactive framework of pHTS. Third, we integrate articulatory control in our interactive approach. Fourth, we present a collection of interactive applications based on our work. Finally, we unify our research into an open source library, Mage. To our current knowledge Mage is the ... toggle 7 keywordsspeech synthesis – statistical parametric synthesis – hidden markov models – hmm-based speech synthesis – hmms – HTS – mage
