  • Publication number: 20200066250
    Abstract: A speech synthesis device according to an embodiment includes a speech synthesizing unit, a speaker parameter storing unit, an availability determining unit, and a speaker parameter control unit. Based on a speaker parameter value representing a set of values of parameters related to the speaker individuality, the speech synthesizing unit is capable of controlling the speaker individuality of synthesized speech. The speaker parameter storing unit is used to store already-registered speaker parameter values. Based on the result of comparing an input speaker parameter value with each already-registered speaker parameter value, the availability determining unit determines the availability of the input speaker parameter value. The speaker parameter control unit prohibits or restricts the use of the input speaker parameter value that is determined to be unavailable by the availability determining unit.

  • Publication number: 20200039548
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a train operation planning support system displays a timetable of a train in which a first required time and a first buffer time are placed for running time of the train and a second required time and a second buffer time are placed for dwell time of the train. The first required time is time required for a train running between a departure station and an arrival station. The first buffer time is buffer time obtained by subtracting the first required time from running time of the train set as a target value. The second required time is time required for the train stopping at the arrival station. The second buffer time is buffer time obtained by subtracting the second required time from dwell time of the train which is set as a target value.
