Novel Speech Motion Generation by Modeling Dynamics of Human Speech Production

Kurima Sakai, Takashi Minato, Carlos T. Ishi, Hiroshi Ishiguro
2017 Frontiers in Robotics and AI  
In addition, our model generates emotional speech motions by tuning its parameters.  ...  This method is based on a spring-damper dynamical model driven by voice features to simulate the human trunk movements involved in speech.  ...  In this study, we develop an analytical model based on the physical constraints (kinematic relations) of a human's speech production.  ...

How prosody marks shifts in footing in classroom discourse

David Skidmore, Kyoko Murakami
2010 International Journal of Educational Research  
If teachers are able to model the enquiring tone of exploratory talk, they may in turn encourage more thoughtful contributions from students.  ...  We identify: (i) teacherled IRF (Initiation ResponseFeedback) discussion; (ii) the teacher's modelling of exploratory talk; (iii) a shift to instructiongiving.  ...  The term corresponds to our common sense idea of 'tone of voice' and refers to parameters of the speaking voice which vary dynamically during facetoface interaction.  ...

What Makes Business Speakers Sound Charismatic?

Oliver Niebuhr, Alexander Brem, Jan Michalsky, Jana Neitsch
2020 Cadernos de Linguística  
However, the tone-of-voice includes a complex bundle of acoustic features, and a lot of parameters have not even been looked at so far.  ...  Phonetic research on the prosodic sources of perceived charisma has taken a big step towards making a speaker's tone-of-voice a tangible, quantifiable, and trainable matter.  ...  Also note that, although MZ talked in front of a big audience, all but one of his acoustic voice parameters (HNR) are even lower than values reported in the literature that were measured for people reading  ...

2009 Computers in the Human Interaction Loop  
Examples of the features that play a part in interaction control include the production and perception of auditory cues such as intonation patterns, pauses, voice quality, and various disfluencies; visual  ...  The bulk of work on interaction control in CHIL has been focused on auditory prosodic cues, but visual cues have also been explored, and especially through the use of embodied conversational agents (ECAs  ...  Next, an articulatory control model is applied to convert the time-aligned phonetic transcription of the utterance into control parameter trajectories to drive the articulation of the talking head model  ...

Lifelike talking faces for interactive services

E. Cosatto, J. Ostermann, H.P. Graf, J. Schoeter
2003 Proceedings of the IEEE  
The sample-based approach, on the other hand, concatenates segments of recorded videos, instead of trying to model the dynamics of the animations in detail.  ...  The traditional model-based approach uses three-dimensional wire-frame models, which can be animated from high-level parameters such as muscle actions, lip postures, and facial expressions.  ...  The dynamics of speech articulation is captured through a statistical model of the phonemes (modeled by Gaussians) in a parameter space.  ...

Speech Synthesis System for Marathi Accent using FESTVOX

Sangramsing N.Kayte, Monica Mundada, Charansing Kayte
2015 International Journal of Computer Applications  
The required speech data for generating voice is recorded in noise less environment. The voice models can be generated by unit selection or clustergen modules present in festvox.  ...  A Text To Speech synthesis (TTS) is the production of artificial speech by a machine for the given text as input.  ...  It explains about the core features of festival framework and text to speech conversion procedure in festival.  ...

Efficient Model for Numerical Text-To-Speech Synthesis System in Marathi, Hindi and English Languages

G. D. Ramteke, R. J. Ramteke
2017 International Journal of Image Graphics and Signal Processing  
In order to enhance the syntactic generation of audible forms in three languages, two discipline tests were performed. The prosodic test has been obtained for evaluating on the statistical readings.  ...  On the basis of two distinct parameters of OQI test, all scores are positively provided. Initial parameter compromises with listening quality.  ...  In the earlier process of generating a voice, distinct sounds should be gone through the block of prosody [15] .  ...
