Call for Papers - Special Issue on Statistical Parametric Speech

 IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing


Statistical parametric speech synthesizers have recently shown
their ability to produce natural-sounding and flexible voices. It
only needs a small training database that can be easily prepared,
and the system can be easily adapted to a new voice. Although the
statistical parametric speech synthesizer has been certainly
successful, there is still a lot of challenge for that. For
instance, a) how to build a statistical parametric speech
synthesizer that can generate emotional or expressive speech, and
how to use it in natural dialog applications; b) is it possible
to combine physical speech production models for statistical
parametric speech synthesis to improve the speech quality; c) how
to build high quality statistical parametric speech synthesizers
by only using a very small training database; d) how to build
parametric synthesizers or speaker adaptation models for
cross-language or multi-language.

The purpose of this special issue is to present recent advances
on statistical parametric speech synthesis, and try to find the
better solution to improve the naturalness and expressivity of
the synthesis results and new areas to extend the
features/applications of statistical parametric speech synthesis.
Contributed papers are invited on, but are not limited to, the
following topics:

    Methods for expressive statistical parametric speech
    synthesis Crosslingual/multilingual techniques for
    statistical parametric speech synthesis New speech
    generation/excitation models for statistical parametric
    speech Combination with physical speech production models for
    statistical parametric speech synthesis Statistical
    parametric speech synthesis for low-resource languages New
    character adaptation method for statistical parametric speech
    synthesis New applications for statistical parametric speech
    synthesis, especially in games, education or medical
