We propose a novel training strategy for Tacotron-based text-to-speech (TTS) system to improve the expressiveness of speech. One of the key challenges in prosody modeling is the lack of reference that makes explicit modeling difficult. The proposed technique doesn't require prosody annotations from training data. It doesn't attempt to model prosody explicitly either, but rather encodes the association between input text and its prosody styles using a Tacotron-based TTS framework.
