Cotovia: Text-to-Speech System for Galician and Spanish
Cotovía is a unit-selection text-to-speech system for Galician and Spanish. Cotovia has been developed by the University de Vigo and the center 'Ramón Piñeiro' for Research in Humanities, both in Galicia, Spain. Its development has involved a research group of linguists and engineers.
Cotovía has been developed as a research project, therefore most of the work has been focused on the most interesting aspects from a scientific point of view. Although the performance of the whole TTS system is quite good, there are some parts that could be clearly improved.
Cotovía can be also used for other related purposes such as automatic phonetic transcription or POS tagging.
