(FR) PROCEDE DE REGULATION DE LA DUREE DANS LA SYNTHESE VOCALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to a method of synthesizing of a speech signal, comprising:- assigning of a first identifier to a first class of intervals of an original speech signal and assigning of a second identifier to a second class of intervals of the original speech signal,- windowing the original speech signal to provide a number of pitch bells,- processing the pitch bells having the first identifier assigned thereto for modifying a duration of the speech signal,- performing an overlap and add operation on the processed pitch bells.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de synthétisation d'un signal vocal comprenant les étapes suivantes: assigner un premier identificateur à une première catégorie d'intervalles d'un signal vocal original et assigner un second identificateur à une seconde catégorie d'intervalles du signal vocal original, fenêtrer le signal vocal original afin de fournir un nombre de bips de pas, traiter les bips de pas présentant le premier identificateur qui leur est assigné pour modifier une durée du signal vocal original, effectuer un chevauchement et ajouter opération sur les bips de pas traités.
