Abstract: In this paper we present a condensed description of a European Portuguese segmental duration’s model for TTS purposes and concentrate on its evaluation. This model is based on artificial neural networks. The evaluation of the model quality was made by comparison with read speech. The standard deviation reached in test set is 19.5 ms and the linear correlation coefficient is 0.84. The model is perceptually evaluated with 4.12 against 4.30 for natural human read speech in a scale of 5.
