Text-to-Speech (TTS) is a computer based system that able to read aloud any input text.
This project will focus on developing a Text-to-Speech (TTS) for Malay language. This
TTS application will enable user to pronounceMalay words correctly. It will read the text
based on its syllable strings. Though mapping sound via words may produce better
pronunciation since it can produce words in more natural, there might difficulties to
maintain the availability of all words. In addition, it might need bigger space to install
audio files into such computer. Thus, mapping sound via syllables in this project can
assure that all Malay words can be read aloud. Moreover, this approach might also enable
all prefixes and suffixes to be read aloud even the pronunciation of words might not that
natural. The syllabification techniques of this project will apply the Maximum Onset
Principle (MOP) approach. This project is extensively developed using VB.NET version
2005 and Sony Sound Forge 8.0. Hence, this project is also a continuation of previous
student project, Mr. Muhammad AshraffAhmad.
