Title (EN) CORRECTING A PRONUNCIATION OF A SYNTHETICALLY GENERATED SPEECH OBJECT
(FR) CORRECTION D'UNE PRONONCIATION D'UN OBJET VOCAL GENERE SYNTHETIQUEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to a method, a device and a software application product for correcting a pronunciation of a speech object. The speech object is synthetically generated from a text object in dependence on a segmented representation of the text object. It is determined if an initial pronunciation of the speech object, which initial pronunciation is associated with an initial segmented representation of the text object, is incorrect. Furthermore, in case it is determined that the initial pronunciation of the speech object is incorrect, a new segmented representation of the text object is determined, which new segmented representation of the text object is associated with a new pronunciation of the speech object.
(FR)Cette invention concerne un procédé, un dispositif et un produit d'application logiciel permettant de corriger une prononciation d'un objet vocal. L'objet vocal est généré synthétiquement à partir d'un objet textuel en fonction d'une représentation segmentée de cet objet textuel. Selon ce procédé, on détermine si une prononciation initiale de l'objet vocal, cette prononciation initiale étant associée à une représentation segmentée initiale de l'objet textuel, est incorrecte. En outre, si on détermine que la prononciation initiale de l'objet vocal est incorrecte, on détermine alors une nouvelle représentation segmentée de l'objet textuel qui est associée à une nouvelle prononciation de l'objet vocal.
