Abstract

We describe the design and recording of a high quality French speech corpus, aimed at building TTS systems, investigate multiple styles, and emphasis. The data was recorded by a French voice talent, and contains about ten hours of speech, including emphasised words in many different contexts. The database contains more than ten hours of speech and is freely available.
