Title Voice Builder: A Tool for Building Text-To-Speech Voices
Authors Pasindu De Silva, Theeraphol Wattanavekin, Tang Hao and Knot Pipatsrisawat
Abstract We describe an opensource text-to-speech (TTS) voice building tool that focuses on simplicity, flexibility, and collaboration. Our tool allows anyone with basic computer skills to run voice training experiments and listen to the resulting synthesized voice. We hope that this tool will reduce the barrier for creating new voices and accelerate TTS research, by making experimentation faster and interdisciplinary collaboration easier. We believe that our tool can help improve TTS research, especially for low-resourced languages, where more experimentations are often needed to get the most out of the limited language resources.
