Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


A prototype of a general-purpose stand-alone text-to-speech system has been built that converts text in normal Dutch orthography into speech. This paper describes the development and features of this system. It uses a rule-based grapheme-phoneme conversion and speech synthesis based on diphone concatenation and a formant synthesizer chip. The hardware is built around an 68000 microprocessor.
