Reactive accent interpolation through an interactive map application

Maria Astrinaki, Junichi Yamagishi, Simon King, Nicolas d'Alessandro, Thierry Dutoit

In this paper, we present our first prototype system for interactive accent control using HMM-based speech synthesis. In this application, voices in various English accents including American, Canadian and British, are controlled and interpolated by the user using gestures acquired via an interactive geographical map in real time. Users can choose the gender of the voices to manipulate and the accent interpolation strategy: either interpolation of all available speakers within an area or the N-nearest speakers around a point.
