Successful operation of the Synchronous Overlap and Add (SOLA) algorithm for Time Scale Modification (TSM) of speech is closely tied to the proper choice of parameters. This paper investigates the quality of time scale modified speech under different values of primary parameters. Based on Mean Opinion Score (MOS) tests and Bark Spectral Distortion (BSD) measure, the proper choices of synthesis shift (Ss) and the duration of the shift search interval (K max ) are given experimentally. The conclusions can be helpful for operating the SOLA algorithm for time scale modification of speech.
