Synthesis of Speech by Electrical Analog Devices

Document Thumbnail

Two electrical devices for simulating the operating of the speech mechanism are described. One synthesizer is a variable transmission-line analog of the vocal tract. The other synthesizer incorporates variable simple-tuned circuits to represent vocal-tract resonances and can be made to generate simple sentences under the control of a teletype tape and relays, or an analyzer that extracts appropriate control signals from human speech.
