The “Allophone Frequency Counter” was designed for specific professional range of users who are engaged in the process of improving the TTS system work.
The service serves the purpose of making systematized (alphabetically or by number) lists of allophones from an input allophonic text. In particular, it is used to create a minimum set of words to cover all existing allophones of the Belarusian language, that would help to avoid wasting time and money on creating new voices for the speech synthesizer.
To use the service, one need to input a text with allophones in a text input field. In the input field of “stop-allophones”, which is located to the right, the user can input a list of allophones to be ignored when searching and sorting. It should be noted that the service also aims at searching and sorting diphones.
