MU-Talk: Text Preprocessor

Robert Mannell

Click here, for an overview of the TTS systems and text preprocessors.

MU-TALK has the ability to handle some of these features, but not all of them. Some features it handles well but there is still room for further development. For example, MU-TALK handles most number strings well, but currently has no way of determining whether "1999" is to be pronounced as a year or an ordinal number. (This is analogous to the homograph problem addressed in another suggested project.)
