2009 (English)In: Proceedings of Fonetik 2009 / [ed] Peter Branderud, Hartmut Traunmüller, Stockholm: Stockholm University, 2009, 28-29 p.Conference paper (Other academic)
We describe ongoing work on synthesizing Swedish dialects with an HMM synthesizer. A prototype synthesizer has been trained on alarge database for standard Swedish read by a professional male voice talent. We have selected a few untrained speakers from each ofthe following dialectal region: Norrland, Dala,Göta, Gotland and South of Sweden. The planis to train a multi-dialect average voice, and then use 20-30 minutes of dialectal speech from one speaker to adapt either the standard Swedish voice or the average voice to the dialect of that speaker.
