A computer system used for this purpose is called a speech computer or speech synthesizer, and can be implemented in software or hardware products. A text-to-speech (TTS) system converts normal language text into speech; other systems render symbolic linguistic representations like phonetic transcriptions into speech.
How does TTS works?
During database creation, all recorded speech is segmented into some or all of the following: diphones, syllables, morphemes, words, phrases, and sentences. To reproduce words from a text, the TTS system begins by carrying out a sophisticated linguistic analysis that transposes written text into phonetic text.
