A simple demo system is prepared for demonstrating the quality of NU-MBROLA concatenator which is able to produce speech from text data. The system is composed of three modules. The first module is the NLP part of EULER system [1] which produces list of phonemes and target prosody from given text. The second module is a non-uniform unit selector and the last module is the NU-MBROLA concatenator. The system is not a full TTS demo, it is prepared just to demonstrate NU-MBROLA concatenation.
