The Centre for Speech Technology Research at the University of Edinburgh
is seeking a research fellow to work on the leading text-to-speech
research toolkit, Festival (www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival) through
the ongoing project "Expressive Prosody for Unit-selection Speech
Synthesis". The project's aims are to add explicit control of prosody to
unit-selection speech synthesis, generate prosody appropriate for
communicating specific meanings and information structures and to
realise this prosody with sequences of appropriately-sized pitch
accents, arranged into valid intonation tunes. This project is jointly
lead by Simon King, Mark Steedman and Rob Clark (Edinburgh) and Dan
Jurafsky (Stanford, USA).
