Text-to-speech is a crucial part of many man-machine communication applications, such as phone booking and banking, vocal e-mail, and many other applications. In addition to many other applications concerning impaired persons, such as: reading machines for blinds, talking machines for persons with speech difficulties. However, the main drawback of most speech synthesizers in the talking machines, are their metallic sounds. In order to sound naturally, we have to incorporate prosodic features, as close as possible to natural prosody, this helps to improve the quality of the synthetic speech. Actual researches in the world are towards better "automatic prosody generation".
