Grapheme-to-phone using finite-state transducers
Proceedings of 2002 IEEE Workshop on Speech Synthesis 2002 WSS-02
Several approaches have been adopted over the years for grapheme-to-phone conversion for European Portuguese: handderived rules, neural networks, classification and regression trees, etc. This paper describes different approaches implemented as Weighted Finite State Transducers (WFSTs), motivated by their flexibility in integrating multiples sources of information and other interesting properties such as inversion. We describe and compare rule-based, data-driven and hybrid approaches. Bestdoi:10.1109/wss.2002.1224412 fatcat:g2qqorrk2zclpler6hmusq7n4e
