Shyam S. Ramamurthy, Gijun Lee, Anshul Arora, and Douglas S. Blank

This paper reports on a comparison to the well-known NetTalk implementation of Engl!sh text-to-speech translation via neural networks. A distributed representation scheme for encoding is investigated opposed to the classic localist representation scheme used in the original NetTalk. The paper discusses a modem re-implementation based on Elman’s Simple Recurrent Network.
