Speech Synthesis & OCR for Indian Languages
Our TTS system was able to achieve an MOS of 4.42 ± 0.53 when compared to the ground truth 4.55 ± 0.56 based on the evaluation of 25 Kannada natives.
A survey was conducted to compare our synthesized speech with the human speech and it was seen that people preferred the synthesized speech over human speech.
