Sufficient data has been included with this history to allow diphone synthesis to be reconstructed by simulation. By it had become apparent that diphones created in isolation were too stressed when used within words and phrases.

The patterns were then taped to a transparent, endless mylar belt to be carried past a flying-spot scanner photos.

This was one of the first uses of intelligibility tests to diagnose problems with speech synthesis. Goal of text-to-speech using diphone concatenation. A synthesis approach based on assembling words from stored diphone segments was chosen because imb the potential reduction in required computer storage over storing whole words, and the expectation that segment assembly would require less real-time processing than a synthesis by rule method.

Donated by IBM Corp. Effect of vowel duration on perceived intensity and quality. This function generator design was believed to offer improvement in flexibility and ease-of-use over the previous designs for multi-channel function generators using conducting ink see SSSHP UK University College London.

IBM Confidential, declassified Jan. No record available of text-to-speech. Dixon was able to improve the method of diphone segmentation and assembly, but text-to-speech capability was not reached. Test procedures and results of intelligibility tests using 64 words from telephone-intercept aau16.

Research and Development, 8, Formant synthesizer implemented with operational amplifiers and controlled by an on-line computer with graphic display.

Diphone-assembly logic starts on leaf 17 for 12 pages.

Initial test material was a synthetic version of the Central Institute for the Deaf intelligibility test CID W22, using phonetically-balanced words. During this period, N. Also, the function generator and synthesizer offered immediate response, whereas complete computer simulation would have required overnight processing.

If necessary within about the next years, the esti- mated life of the paper, the electronic diphone library 5B can be reconstructed by scanning the printed pages and using optical character recognition see included Reconstruction notes. Initial products were commercial scales, meat and cheese slicers, industrial time-recording equipment, tabulators, and punched cards.


The goal was a completely simulated text-to-speech system. To solve that problem, formal intelligibility tests were implemented, using naive listeners from a local university. Use of CID-W22 lists in intelli- gibility testing, effects of word and diphone familiarity, techniques of diphone synthesis, test procedures, results.

A research project to revive the diphone synthesis work after ten years. Amplitude modulation of the noise source to improve naturalness. Byit had ib, apparent that familiarization with the synthetic material limited the research staff’s ability to make further improvements in the synthesis. Synthesis imb an improved diphone segment library and algorithms.

Experimental speech synthesis system description, diphone assembly algorithms. The synthesizer control patterns were stored digitally in the computer in short units, mainly as consonant- vowel and vowel-consonant pairs.

Late in the year, additions to the function generator allowed the au116 to be sampled at millisecond intervals and punched into cards for entry into the IBM imb. Word time slots of ms on a magnetic drum, words maximum, available to 48 telephone lines simultaneously.
