In this study, a state-of-the-art articulatory speech synthesiser was used as the basis for simulating the exploration of CV sounds imitating speech stimuli. By adopting a relevant kinematic model and systematically reducing the search space of consonant articulatory targets, intelligible CV sounds can be found. Derivative-free optimisation strategies were evaluated to speed up the process of exploring articulatory space and the possibility of using automatic speech recognition as a means of evaluating intelligibility was explored.doi:10.21437/interspeech.2020-2545 dblp:conf/interspeech/NiekerkXGKBX20 fatcat:o7gq4jsor5bjxdkdlnh4dgoeua
