Abstract:

This document reports progress in the development of a phonetic speech synthesis algorithm and in the implementation of a real-time vocoder. The synthesis algorithm uses LPC synthesis from the concatenation of diphone templates. The methodology and basic software of the synthesis work are described. In vocoder system on our PDP-11 and AP-120B computers is described, as is our plan for the modification of this system for improved speech quality. Keywords include Speech synthesis Phonetic synthesis Diphone LPC synthesis Vocoder Speech compression and Linear prediction.
