Title (EN) VOICE TONE VARIATION PORTION LOCATING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE LOCALISATION DE PARTIE DE VARIATION D’INTONATION
(JA) 声質変化箇所特定装置
Abstract:
(EN) A text editing device capable of predicting the voice tone variation likelihood or determining whether or not a voice tone variation will occur. The text editing device presents a portion of a text where the voice tone of the user reading the text may vary on the basis of language analysis information on the text. The device comprises a voice tone variation estimating section (103) for estimating the likelihood of voice tone variation of when the user reads a text for each predetermined unit of an input symbol sequence including at least one phoneme sequence on the basis of the language analysis information which is a symbol sequence of a language analysis result containing a phoneme sequence corresponding to the text, a voice tone variation part judging section (105) for locating the portion in the text where the voice tone is apt to vary on the basis of the language analysis information and the estimation by the voice tone variation estimating section (103), and a display section (108) for presenting the located portion in the text where the voice tone is liable to vary to the user.
(FR) Dispositif traitement de texte pouvant prédire la probabilité de variation d’intonation ou déterminer si une variation d’intonation de voix se produira ou non. Le dispositif traitement de texte présente une partie d’un texte où l’intonation de l’utilisateur lisant le texte peut varier sur la base d’informations d’analyse linguistique du texte. Le dispositif comprend une section d’estimation de variation d’intonation (103) pour estimer la probabilité d’une variation d’intonation du lecteur du texte pour chaque unité prédéterminée d’une séquence de symboles d’entrée incluant au moins une séquence de phonèmes sur la base des informations d’analyse linguistique, qui est une séquence de symboles d’un résultat d’analyse linguistique contenant une séquence de phonèmes correspondant au texte, une section d’estimation de partie de variation d’intonation (105) pour localiser la partie du texte où l’intonation peut varier sur la base des informations d’analyse linguistique et de l’estimation par la section d’estimation de variation d’intonation (103), et une section d’affichage (108) pour présenter la partie localisée dans le texte où l’intonation est susceptible de varier.
(JA)  声質変化の発生しやすさの予測または声質変化が発生するか否かの特定を行なうことができるテキスト編集装置は、テキストに対応する言語解析情報に基づいて、読み上げた際に声質が変化する可能性のある前記テキスト中の箇所を提示する装置であって、テキストに対応する音韻列を含む言語解析結果の記号列である言語解析情報に基づいて、少なくとも1つの音韻列を含む入力記号列の所定の単位ごとに、ユーザが前記テキストを読み上げた際の声質変化の起こりやすさを推定する声質変化推定部(103)と、前記言語解析情報と前記声質変化推定部(103)による推定結果とに基づいて、声質変化の起こりやすいテキスト中の箇所を特定する声質変化部分判定部(105)と、前記声質変化部分判定部(105)で特定された声質変化の起こりやすいテキスト中の箇所をユーザに提示する表示部(108)とを備える。
