Abstract

Speech is generated by articulating speech organs such as jaw, tongue, and lips according to their motor commands. We have developed speech production model that converts a phoneme-specific motor task sequence into a continuous acoustic signal. This paper describes a computational model of the speech production process which involves a motor process to generate articulatory movements from the motor task sequences and an aero-acoustic process in the vocal tract to produce speech signals. Simulation results on continuous speech production show that this model can accurately predict the actual articulatory movements and generate natural-sounding speech.
