Research aiming to develop a text-to-speech converter (TSC) for Spanish, that accepts a continuous source of alphanumeric characters (up to 250 words per minute) and produces good quality, natural Spanish output, is described. Four sets of problems are considered in this work: the hard-ware structure adopted for real time operation; the complex control software needed to handle the orthographic input and linguistic programs; the linguistic processing rules, and the parametrization of the Spanish language matched to a TSC. Emphasis is made on the problems of adapting a general hardware structure to a specific language.
