Abstract

A new Maharashtra Marathi voice was created using four festival modules Clunits, Clustergen, Multisyn and HTS, as well as an additional database was created with straight processing. All voices were created using the same database to allow for consistency and for easier comparison of the output. Once these voices have been created they can be used as a baseline for further development in Maharashtra Marathi speech synthesis. Except for the Multisyn module, which has some problems due to coverage, results are acceptable, with the HMM designed voices having the best quality.
