Kotha : the first to speech synthesis for Bangla language
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we present Text to Speech (TTS) synthesis system for Bangla language. Here the system developed using phonology, G2P conversion and prosodic information in the festival  framework. Since Festival does not provide complete language processing support specific to various languages, so it is augmented with linguistic resources to facilitate the development of TTS systems. We propose how various language-processing modules such as text normalization, grapheme-to-phoneme (G2P), intonation, and duration models can be develop and integrate within Festival to develop Bangla TTS system.
