14th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS-14)
San Francisco, CA, USA
Speech timing at different speaking rates was studied for the
Slovenian language and the results were applied in the two level
duration prediction model in the SQEL Slovenian text-to-speech
system S5 .
In order to provide the synthesiser with the possibility to pronounce input text with several speaking rates, tests were made to study the impact of speaking rate on syllable duration and duration of individual phones and phoneme groups for the Slovenian language.
