Speech synthesis[edit]

Self-nomination. This is the first article I worked on for Wikipedia, and I think it has become a fairly complete and accessible overview of the history and technology of speech synthesis. The only area that needs work I think is the history section glosses over most of the recent history of speech synthesis, but in all honesty, the history of speech synthesis is pretty boring: someone comes up with a new technique that improves intelligibility or naturalness and computers have gotten more powerful, and therefore TTS systems have gotten better and better. That's really about it. There is a picture, and there are lots of external links that have samples of the speech synthesis, so the multimedia factor I think is high, especially for such a technical topic.
