Generating gestural timing from EMA data using articulatory resynthesis
Proc. 8th International Seminar on Speech Production
As part of ongoing work to integrate an articulatory synthesizer into a modular TTS platform, a method is presented which allows gestural timings to be generated automatically from EMA data. Further work is outlined which will adapt the vocal tract model and phoneset to English using new articulatory data, and use statistical trajectory models.
