Prosody control for speaking and singing styles

Abstract:
By proper control of prosody, text-to-speech systems already have the capacity to imitate distinctive speaking styles. We show two examples where we can capture the critical features: the singing style of Dinah Shore and the speaking style of Martin Luther King Jr. The styles are described by Stem-ML tags (soft template mark-up language), which offers the flexibility needed to control accent shapes, phrasal pitch contours, and amplitude profiles, for speech as well as for singing.
