Message 1: Request: Information on African Text-To-Speech literatures

Subject: Request: Information on African Text-To-Speech literatures

Dear listers,

I am looking for literatures on African Text-To-Speech (TTS) related
research. There seems to have been no substantial work on African
Text-To-Speech (TTS) research. Friends of mine from the Speech
processing field also have not come across such literature. However,
I would like to confirm this by querying other researchers if they
have come across such work.

The African language that I am particular interested in is Yoruba,
which belongs to the Niger-Congo language family (according to
Ethnologue.com). However, I'd appreciate any literature on developing
African TTS.

If you have any information on this, I would be grateful
if you would let me know.

Yours sincerely,
Sylvia
