Construction of both text-to-speech synthesis (TTS) and au-tomatic speech recognition (ASR) systems involves usage of speech data bases. These data bases usually consist of read text, which means that one has significant control over the content of the data base. Here we address how one can take advantage of this control, by discussing a number of variants of "greedy" text selection methods and showing their application in a variety of examples.
