An unlimited vocabulary text-to-speech engine has been developed, which currently handles both Tamil and Kannada Unicode text. The input text is processed by a grapheme to phoneme converter module, which uses language specific pronunciation rules to convert the text into an unambiguous phonetic representation. This text is then parsed into demisyllable like basic units. The occurrence of these basic units is searched for, from the phonetically rich spoken database, which is segmented and annotated at the phone level. An unit selection algorithm then selects the best combination of the available speech units to be enated to synthesize the speech, which is then converted into .wav format.
