In terms of voice synthesis, issued a similar learning how to make the computer human way of speaking, such as breaking words judge, tone and
rhythm of expression context is relevant objective of the study, and in the development of multi-party, the modern computer speech synthesis has been able to give a clear statementbut in tone on the rhythm, the machine is still smooth tone.
The focus of this paper, that is Zhuchong to let the computer learn to judge the tone of the sentence, combined with Hidden Markov Model and adjust the parameters and language of rhythm parameters, so close to humanspeech synthesis more natural pronunciation.
CD-ROM and use the market to do more, although not completely as the result of human naturalpronunciation, but compared to other online speech synthesis system, there is a better sense of rhythm andtone.
Computer speech synthesis with today's multimedia devices, such as tablet PCs, e-books and other reading or language learning as a powerful tool.
