Abstract

A new HMM-based speech synthesis system for Slovenian language is presented. The quality of synthesized speech has been assessed by subjective and objective tests. The results show that the new system outperforms our previously developed diphone-based waveform concatenation synthesizer in terms of naturalness and general impression.
