Qs: Blizzard Challenge: Speech Synthesis Evaluations
Editor for this issue: Catherine Adams
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

We're pleased to announce that the Blizzard Challenge 2008 listening test
is now running. The Blizzard Challenge is the only open, international
evaluation campaign for text-to-speech systems. To find out more, please
see http://www.synsig.org/index.php/Blizzard_Challenge .
Taking part in the listening test is a unique opportunity to hear a range
of text-to-speech systems, including some start-of-the-art systems from
both commercial and university research groups, as well as helping to
develop better speech synthesis.
Subjects do not need to be native speakers - we gather information about
this in the questionnaire at the end of the listening test. The listening
test can be completed in one session, or over multiple sessions.
Please report problems to blizzardfestvox.org
The test site will remain open until June 16th 2008.
