Second International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP'92)
Banff, Alberta, Canada
The synthesis of names and addresses is a difficult topic for general text-to-speech systems. Language tagging strategies and special name pronunciation rules need to be developed. In this development, databases play a crucial part. We describe the characteristics of a name database consisting of more than 500,000 Dutch, French and German entries. Some aspects of our strategy for developing name pronunciation systems are highlighted.
