    Judgements of phonetic distance between pairs of static synthetic vowels and fricatives have been collected in which the stimulus ensemble included formant frequency changes and a number of acoustic changes that turn out to have little phonetic relevance (e.g. spectral tilt, relative formant amplitudes, high-pass, low-pass, and notch filtering). These data can be used to evaluate a spectral distan... View full abstract»

    A real time text-to-speech conversion system has been developed. Input is ordinary English spelling and/or simple numerical and algebraic expressions. Dynamic selection between a male or female output voice is under user control. The system executes a set of about 500 letter-to-sound rules to guess at the pronunciation of words that do not match a carefully selected exceptions dictionary of about ... View full abstract»
