The Seventh ISCA Tutorial and Research Workshop on Speech Synthesis
State-of-the-art unit-selection text-to-speech systems currently produce very natural synthetic speech, at the price however of a costly and time-consuming voice creation process. We report here an extensive perceptual evaluation of several voice creation strategies, and conclude with a novel 1- day process giving access to high quality TTS voices.
