This is the first book to treat two areas of speech synthesis: natural language processing and the inherent problems it presents for speech synthesis; and digital signal processing, with an emphasis on the concatenative approach. The text guides the reader through the material in a step-by-step easy-to-follow way. The book will be of interest to researchers and students in phonetics and speech communication, in both academia and industry.(1997) that, when optimally combining short term (that is, on a sample basis) and long term ... with less than 30 kb/s (to be compared to the 256 kb/s of the initial speech data at 16 kHz), with very limited increase in computational cost.
