Second ESCA/IEEE Workshop on Speech Synthesis
September 12-15, 1994
We present in this paper the methodology and results of a duration study designed for the Mandarin Chinese Text-to-speech system of AT&T Bell Laboratories. A greedy algorithm is used to select text from on-line corpora to maximize the coverage of factors that are important to duration study. Duration model and interesting results will be discussed.
