First annual doctoral seminar

Time: Fri 2019-12-06 15.15

Lecturer: Christina Tånnander

Location: Fantum (Lindstedtsvägen 24, floor 5, room no. 522)

This annual doctoral seminar is about speech synthesis for reading long
and information rich texts aloud. I’m especially interested in (1) text
processing, G2P etc. for speech synthesis; (2) text profiling to predict
a text’s suitability for being read by a synthetic voice, or to see if
certain text types are helped by being read in a certain manner (reading
style); and (3) evaluation methods of voices and reading styles for long
texts, both for synthetic and human voices.

I will summarize the work of my first year as an industrial PhD student
at TMH and present the preliminary plans for 2020.
