The „Uprooted“ MaryTTS Entry for the Blizzard Challenge 2017

Blizzard Challenge, Stockholm, Sweden, 2017.

The MaryTTS system is a modular text-to-speech (TTS) system which has been developed for nearly 20 years. This paper describes the MaryTTS entry for the Blizzard Challenge 2017. In contrast to last year’s MaryTTS system, based on a unit selection baseline using the latest stable MaryTTS version, the basis for this year’s system is a new, experimental version with a completely redesigned architecture.
