Blizzard Challenge

Oliver and I participated in the 2010 Blizzard Challenge (Speech synthesis open evaluation using the common database). The followings are audio samples of synthetic speech generated from a new HMM-based speech synthesis system which we built for the 2010 challenge:

broadcast_2010_0001
news_2010_0001
novel_2010_0001

The evaluation results with over 20 TTS systems are shown in this summer.
