'Speech synthesis and phonems'

Has anyone run across English phonems for speech synthesis as audio samples
on the 'net?  Something like .wav files of all the different sounds the
ancient speech synthesis chips could make would be ideal.

I've down a little searching around, but keep running into full
text-to-speech programs, not just the audio samples.

I realize I could always record the output of one of the old chips, but I
don't have one on hand.


thanks,
newell

This has the software, but it also has some samples, I believe.

Here's something I found in the comp.speech FAQ, which might help:

* Some basic data. The following ftp sites have samples of English
      phonemes (American accent I believe) in Sun audio format files.
      See Question 1.8 for information on audio file formats.

         ftp://sounds.sdsu.edu/.1/phonemes: This ftp site appears to be
         obsolete. Does anyone know a new address?

         ftp://phloem.uoregon.edu/pub/Sun4/lib/phonemes: There appears
         to be some config problem with this ftp server.

         ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/multimedia/sun-sounds/phonemes

Of course, you could always make your own by editing some samples.

1.    Look at the MBROLA project on :


MBROLA: Free Speech Synthesis Project
http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/modelcmp.html WWW demo of
MBROLA which compares the quality of PSOLA, MBR-PSOLA, LPC,
and Hybrid Harmonic/Stochastic concatenative synthesizers.
Provided by the TCTS Lab, Faculti Polytechnique de Mons,
Belgium Institute of Phonetic Sciences
http://fonsg3.let.uva.nl/IFA-Features.html Links to lots of
on-line speech synthesis demonstrations provided by the
Institute of Phonetic Sciences of the Faculty of Arts of the
University of Amsterdam. Yahoo page on speech generation

They are actually using "Diphones" which are half-phonemes
joined in  pairs but the resources are free for
non-commercial use.

2.    ALSO this may be useful

* WWW searchable online-bibiliography for Phonetics and
Speech Technology with more than 8000 entries. Provided by
Institut fur Phonetik at Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitat
Frankfurt. http://www.uni-frankfurt.de/~ifb/bib_engl.html *
Computational Speech Processing: Speech Analysis,
Recognition

3.    If you want a truly horrificly large resource look up
the voice synthesis faq in
Usenet FAQ Archive -
www.netmeg.net/faq/computers/speech/01.html
Its about 450K of references etc in 3 files.
