UMSI-CNRS, Orsay, France

The present paper describes a module for rule-based segmental synthesis of French, i. e the module which converts an allophonic string into an acoustic parameter file to be sent to the synthesizer. This study used tools and procedures originally developed for a Dutch text-to-speech system and was conducted in the multilingual synthesis framework of the POLYGLOT project. (ESPRIT project 2104).
