Text-to-Speech Synthesis

Volume 3

An Introduction to Text-to-Speech Synthesis is a comprehensive introduction to the subject. The author treats two areas of speech synthesis: Part I of the book concerns natural language processing and the inherent problems it presents for speech synthesis; Part II focuses on digital signal processing, with an emphasis on the concatenative approach. Both parts of the text guide the reader through the material in a step-by-step easy-to-follow way.

This is the first book to treat the topic of speech synthesis from the perspective of two different engineering approaches. The book will be of interest to researchers and students in phonetics and speech communication, in both academia and industry.
