LIMMITS’23 - Lightweight, Multi-Speaker, Multi-Lingual Indic Text-to-Speech: ICASSP 2023


The LIMMITS’23 challenge on LIghtweight, Multi-speaker, Multi-lingual Indic Text-to-Speech Synthesis is being organized as part of the Signal Processing Grand Challenge track at ICASSP 2023. As a part of this challenge, TTS corpora in Marathi, Hindi, and Telugu datasets will be released. These TTS corpora are being built in the SYSPIN project at SPIRE lab, Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore, India. In the SYSPIN project, TTS corpora comprising 40 hours of speech from a male and a female voice artist in each of the nine Indian languages (Hindi, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Magahi, Chhattisgarhi, Maithili) are being collected. 

The challenge aims towards helping and encouraging the advancement of TTS in Indian languages. The basic challenge is to take the released speech data, build TTS voices, and share the voice in web API form for evaluation. The output from each synthesizer will be evaluated through both objective and subject manner. The primary objective of this challenge is understanding and comparing the various approaches to build TTS in multi-speaker and multi-lingual setting in three Indian languages.
