Evaluation of Speaking Style Adaptation for Expressive Speech Synthesis

[Apologizes for multiple cross-posting]

Call for participation to the evaluation of speaking style adaptation for expressive speech synthesis

This study aims at evaluating speaking style adaptation in speech synthesis.

Each speaker has his own speaking style which constitutes his voice signature, and a part of his identity. 
Nevertheless, a speaker continuously adapt his speaking style according to specific communication situations.
Or, each situational context determines a specific mode of production associated with it - a genre - which is defined by a set of conventions of form and content that is shared among all of its productions.
In particular, a specific discourse genre relate to a specific speaking style

The experiment is open to anyone and will be closed on 2011, February 1st
