Tube Talker Speech Synthesis Demonstrations - 2023

The sentence-level speech synthesis samples on this page were generated with a version of TubeTalker based on:

Story, B. H., & Bunton, K. (2019). A model of speech production based on the acoustic relativity of the vocal tract. The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 146(4), 2522-2528.

The adult female and 8 year-old child versions were based on the vocal tract scaling model presented in:

Story, B. H., Vorperian, H. K., Bunton, K., & Durtschi, R. B. (2018). An age-dependent vocal tract model for males and females based on anatomic measurements. The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America143(5), 3079-3102.
