Estimation of Single-Gaussian and Gaussian mixture models for pattern recognition

Single-Gaussian and Gaussian-Mixture Models are utilized in various pattern recognition tasks. The model parameters are estimated usually via Maximum Likelihood Estimation (MLE) with respect to available training data. However, if only small amount of training data is available, the ...

Correlation analysis of facial features and sign gestures

In this paper we focus on the potential correlation of the manual and the non-manual component of sign language. This information is useful for sign language analysis, recognition and synthesis. We are mainly concerned with the application for sign synthesis. First we extracted fea...

Pitch marks at peaks or valleys?

This paper deals with the problem of speech waveform polarity. As the polarity of speech waveform can influence the performance of pitch marking algorithms, the simple method for the speech signal polarity determination is presented in this paper. We call this problem peak/valley&#...

The issue of checking the volume consistence of speech corpus during recording

This paper deals with the problem of checking the consistency of the speech corpus during recording in terms of the level of speech power of individual recordings. The question was whether or not setting of the limits of RMS value is useful for checking the volume co...

Pitch contours as predictors of audible concatenation artifacts

This paper deals with the traditional problem of the occurrence of audible discontinuities at concatenation points at diphone boundaries in the concatenative speech synthesis. While most of the related studies put stress on the spectral component, we focused on the pitch contours and&#x...

ARTIC: a new czech text-to-speech system using statistical approach to speech segment database construciton

This paper presents ARTIC, a brand-new Czech text-to-speech (TTS) system. ARTIC (ARtificial Talker In Czech) is a concatenation-based system that consists of three main, relatively independent, components: speech segment database, text analyzer and speech synthesizer. A statistical approach to speech&...

Design of speech corpus for text-to-speech synthesis

This paper deals with the design of a speech corpus for a concatenation-based text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis. Several aspects of the design process are discussed here. We propose a sentence selection algorithm to choose sentences (from a large text corpus) which will be read and&#x...

German and czech speech synthesis using HMM-based speech segment database

This paper presents an experimental German speech synthesis system. As in case of a Czech text-to-speech system ARTIC, statistical approach (using hidden Markov models) was employed to build a speech segment database. This approach was confirmed to be language independent and it was...
