Abstract


This paper presents the development of Pashto digits and number synthesis system based on formant synthesis approach. The speech synthesis system generates the Pashto digits and number, form sefer (zero) to yaw zer (one thousand). The formant frequencies are extracted from the recording of isolated Pashto digits and numbers using colea tool. The Pashto digits are then synthesized by using the features extracted from the audio of these isolated Pashto digits. The training audio data used in this work has been recorded using Sony PCM-M 10 linear Recorder. The entire recording has been conducted in a noise free office environment. The recorded Pashto digits audio file is then split into isolated digits by utilizing Adobe Audition ver 1.0.
