This paper outlines the characteristics of the computer voice response systems and describes in detail a synthesis-by-rule system for the Italian language. The synthesis-by-rule is based on a mathematical model of the human phonatory apparatus and makes it possible to easily control the prosodic features (intonation, stress, context, etc. ). A particular emphasis is given to the description of the practical aspects of the system, which has been implemented on a minicomputer, and to the software methodologies adopted to efficiently manage the system's facilities in an interactive way.

Abstract

This paper outlines the characteristics of the computer voice response systems and describes in detail a synthesis-by-rule system for the Italian language. The synthesis-by-rule is based on a mathematical model of the human phonatory apparatus and makes it possible to easily control the prosodic features (intonation, stress, context, etc. ). A particular emphasis is given to the description of the practical aspects of the system, which has been implemented on a minicomputer, and to the software methodologies adopted to efficiently manage the system's facilities in an interactive way.
