Original Abstract

ALISP (Automatic Language Independent Speech Processing) units are an alternative concept to using phoneme-derived units in speech processing. This article describes advances in very low bit rate coding using ALISP units. Results of speaker-independent experiments are reported and speaker clustering using vector quantization is proposed. The improvements of speech re-synthesis using Harmonic Noise Model and dynamic selection of units are discussed.
