We gratefully acknowledge the support from ISCA and from the Interspeech 2017 organisers, in putting on this tutorial in Stockholm.

This tutorial combines the theory and practical application of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) for Text-to-Speech (TTS). It illustrates how DNNs are rapidly advancing the performance of all areas of TTS, including waveform generation and text processing, using a variety of model architectures. We link the theory to implementation with the Open Source Merlin toolkit.
