    Abstract

    This paper describes a method for generating natural sounding speech, called phrase concatenation, which is used in a telephone inquiry system that provides train timetable information. The concatenation technique used combines pre-recorded words and phrases, but is new in that it involves the recording of several prosodically different versions of otherwise identical phrases. Although no formal evaluation has taken place yet, we feel confident in saying that the output meets high quality standards and approaches the quality of natural speech.
