Speech Synthesis for the Chuvash Language with Deep Neural Networks
I trained a few popular speech synthesizers to produce intelligible Chuvash audio clips from written samples of the language. I used Python as the primary programming language and R for processing non-audio data. Special permission was granted to train neural networks for each speech synthesis solution on IU's Big Red II supercomputer.
