The task of the service “Thematic Lists Collector” is to provide at least one vivid example for displaying any allophone or diphone (in this case it is formed of sonorant and vowel). Word lists, which were created by expert, are the basis of the given service. The matched words were grouped by the subjects for using and perceiving them more effectively. The random set of words which are sometimes not interconnected at all evokes some difficulties – the user subconsciously starts to correlate a certain word with its subject field, which diverts attention from the task and slows down work.
To get the word lists for allophones, which are subject-grouped, one should click “Read Data from Xslx File (Allophones)” (figure 1), for diphones – “Read Data from Xslx File (Diphones)” (figure 2).
Data of the service will be used for improving the TTS synthesizer by reading and cutting allophones, which at the moment are either absent in the database of synthesizer or of bad quality.
