They are: (i) naturalness of voice, (ii) prosodic quality, (iii) fluency and intelligibility, (iv) absence of disturbances, and (v) calmness. Moreover, a test protocol for the efficient indentification of those dimensions in a listening test is introduced. Furthermore, several factors influencing these dimensions are examined. In addition, different techniques for the instrumental quality assessment of TTS signals are introduced, reviewed and tested. Finally, the requirements for the integration of an instrumental quality measure into a concatenative TTS system are examinedSummary: Introduction -- Speech Synthesis -- Auditory and Instrumental Quality Evaluation Metrics -- Perceptual Quality Dimensions -- Influencing Factors on Perceptual Quality -- Instrumental Quality Assessment -- Requirements for the Integration of an Instrumental Quality Measure into a Concatenative TTS System -- ConclusionsPPN: PPN: 1658181204Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-2-ENG
