Hello, I am currently working on the evaluation of speech synthesis for use in computer-assisted language learning for my PhD. In particular the evaluation of both French and English speech synthesisers for use in language learning and teaching. Regarding the evaluation of English speech synthesisers, I am currently looking for the full corpora of the following intelligibility tests for English: Egan's phonetically/phonemically balanced sentences and word lists Haskins sentences Harvard sentences Semantically unpredictable sentences (I would be particularly interested in knowing whether it is possible to get hold of a program that generates these) Does anyone know if they are available on line somewhere? Thank you very much for you help, Zoe Handley ---------------------------------------------------------- MPhil by research (subject: Evaluation of speech synthesis for computer assisted langauge learning) Centre for Computational Linguistics - MB/C25c UMIST PO Box 88 Manchester M60 1QD UK zoe.handley_(on)_postgrad.umis t.ac.uk
