Text-to-speech phoneme generator for french language
Converts french text to phonemes as a preprocessor for mbrola. LLIAPHON contains a set of scripts that transform a raw text into its phonetic form, which can be used as an input for the speech synthesizer MBROLA. There are four main steps in the original LLIAPHON process:
- Formatting the text
- POS tagging + accentuation
- Grapheme-to-Phoneme transcription
- MBROLA format
The LLIAPHON main goal is to produce a final wholly phonetized format that can be easily transformed to an audio signal.
