Attempts to control the quality of voice of synthesized speech have existed for more than a decade now. Several prototypes and fully operating systems have been built based on different synthesis technique. This article reviews recent research advances in R&D of speech synthesis with focus on one of the key approaches i.e. statistical parametric approach to speech synthesis based on HMM, so as to provide a technological perspective. In this approach, spectrum, excitation, and duration of speech are simultaneously modeled by context ?dependent HMMs, and speech waveforms are generated from the HMMs themselves. This paper aims to give an overview of what has been done in this field, summarize and compare the characteristics of various synthesis techniques used. It is expected that this study shall be a contribution in the field of speech synthesis and enable identification of research topic and applications which are at the forefront of this exciting and challenging field.
