Biomechanical modeling of articulators such as the tongue has been pioneered by a number of scientists, including Reiner Wilhelms-Tricarico [5]Yohan Payan [6] and Jean-Michel Gerard [7]Jianwu Dang and Kiyoshi Honda [8].

Digital modelling of a variable-length acoustic tube. This synthesizer, known as ASY, [3] was a computational model of speech production based on vocal tract models developed at Bell Laboratories in the s and s by Paul Mermelstein, Cecil Coker, and colleagues.

The first software articulatory synthesizer regularly used for laboratory experiments was developed at Haskins Laboratories in the mids by Philip Rubin lkchbaum, Tom Baer, and Paul Mermelstein. The first electrical vocal tract analogs were static, like those of DunnKen Stevens spfech colleaguesGunnar Fant Speech and Audio Processing A full 3D articulatory synthesis model has been described by Olov Engwall.

The ArtiSynth project, [6] headed by Sidney Fels [4] at the University of British Columbiais a 3D biomechanical modeling toolkit for the human vocal tract and upper airway. One of the few commercial articulatory speech synthesis systems is the NeXT -based system originally developed and marketed by Trillium Sound Research, a spin-off company of the University of Calgarywhere much of the original research was conducted. Continuous variation of the vocal tract length in a Kelly—Lochbaum type speech production model.

Recent progress in speech production imaging, articulatory control modeling, and tongue biomechanics modeling has led to changes in the way articulatory synthesis is performed [1]. In this paper we propose an extended approach, where lochhaum tube sections approximating the profile of the tract are conical instead of cylindrical.

Articulatory synthesis refers to computational techniques for synthesizing speech based on models of the human vocal tract and the articulation processes occurring there. Kelly and Lochbaum made the first computer simulation; later digital computer simulations have been made, e. From This Paper Figures, tables, and topics from this paper. This paper has 33 citations. Another popular model that has been frequently used is that of Shinji Maeda, which uses a factor-based approach to control tongue shape.
