Title (EN) ENHANCED HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE THROUGH HYBRID WORD RECOGNITION AND DYNAMIC SPEECH SYNTHESIS TUNING
(FR) INTERFACE HOMME-MACHINE AMÉLIORÉE PAR LA RECONNAISSANCE DE MOTS HYBRIDE ET L'ADAPTATION DYNAMIQUE DE LA SYNTHÈSE DE LA PAROLE
Abstract:
(EN) A human machine interface enables human users to interact with a machine by inputting auditory and/or textual data. The interface and corresponding method perform efficient look up of words, corresponding to inputted human data, which are stored in a domain database. The robustness of a speech synthesis engine is enhanced by updating the deployed pronunciation vocabulary dynamically. The architecture of the preferred embodiment of the former method includes a combination of ensemble matching, clustering, and rearrangement methods. The latter method involves retrieving suggested phonetic pronunciations for words unknown to the speech synthesis engine and verifying those through a manual or autonomous process.
(FR) Selon cette invention, une interface homme-machine permet aux utilisateurs humains d'interagir avec une machine grâce à l'entrée de données acoustiques et/ou textuelles. Ladite interface et un procédé correspondant réalisent une recherche de mots efficace sur les données humaines entrées, ces mots étant mémorisés dans une base de données de domaine. La robustesse d'un moteur de synthèse de la parole est améliorée par la mise à jour dynamique du vocabulaire de prononciation déployé. L'architecture du mode de réalisation préféré du premier procédé comprend la combinaison de procédés de mise en correspondance d'un ensemble, regroupement et réarrangement. Le dernier procédé consiste à récupérer des prononciations phonétiques suggérées pour des mots inconnus du moteur de synthèse de la parole, et à les vérifier grâce à un processus manuel ou autonome.
