Sažetak
In this paper we investigate a bilingual HMM-based speech synthesis developed for Slovenian and Croatian languages. The primary goals of this research are to investigate the performance of an HMM-based synthesis build from two similar languages and to perform a comparison of such synthesis system with standard monolingual speaker-dependent HMM-based synthesis. The bilingual HMM synthesis is built by joining all the speech material from both languages by defining proper mapping of Slovenian and Croatian phonemes and by adapting acoustic models of Slovenian and Croatian speakers. Adapted acoustic models are then served as basic building blocks for speech synthesis in both languages. In such a way we are able to obtain synthesized speech of both languages, but with the same speaker voice. We made the quantitative comparison of such kind of synthesis with monolingual counterparts and study the performance of the synthesis in a relation to the amount of data, which is used for building the synthesis system.
