We would like thank
the Festvox/Festival development team who made it possible
to develop TTS systems for so many languages and thus
created an opportunity to give access to a huge number
of people to the digital information. We specially thank
Dr. Alan W Black ,Kevin A. Lenzo and people who were
so supportive in the Festival mailing list.
Without the support
of Mr. Mahboob Alam, Assistant Professor, Department
of Computer Science, AIUB - our supervisor, this work
would simply not be. We like to thank Mr.Hamidul Haque,
Faculty of English, AIUB his linguistic knowledge and
patience were providential for us. We should remember
our friend Samad Farzana, for her support and encouragement.
