Corrective re-synthesis of deviant speech using unit selection
2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the 18th Nordic Conference of Computational Linguistics: Nodalida 2011 / [ed] Sandford Pedersen, B.; Nespore, G.; Skadina, I., 2011, 214-217 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This report describes a novel approach to modified re-synthesis, by concatenation of speech from different speakers. The system removes an initial voiceless plosive from one utterance, recorded from a child, and replaces it with another voiceless plosive selected from a database of recordings of other child speakers. Preliminary results from a listener evaluation are reported.
