ResearchSTTS aims to work in close connection to research and academia. We do this partly because of our own interest in research, but mainly to improve our work by taking part in the latest development on speech and language technology. We are currently involved in the following:
- STTS was one of the partners of CTT (Centre for speech
technology) at KTH, the Royal
Institute of Technology in Stockholm. As part of the partnership, STTS
produced Swedish and English unit selection synthesis for Festival.
- Since 2005, Harald Berthelsen is a PhD student at Trinity College in Dublin. His work
deals with Irish speech synthesis.
- STTS has assisted in supervising students at CTT and the Language engineering programme at the university of Uppsala.
