Albert Rilliard

ICP-CNRS, France

This paper present an experiment designed to test the relative efficiency of two perception methods of synthetic prosody evaluation, compared to the influence of the evaluated stimuli nature. After the description of the possible paradigm, we present the analysis of a perception test and then a comparison of these subjective results to acoustic measurement of the distance between synthetic and natural prosodies.
