dc.description.abstractDeep Learning has been applied successfully to speech processing. In this paper we propose an architecture for speech synthesis using multiple speakers. Some hidden layers are shared by all the speakers, while there is a specific output layer for each speaker. Objective and perceptual experiments prove that this scheme produces much better results in comparison with single speaker model. Moreover, we also tackle the problem of speaker adaptation by adding a new output branch to the model and successfully training it without the need of modifying the base optimized model. This fine tuning method achieves better results than training the new speaker from scratch with its own model.
