BlurtMime: Articulatory Phonetics using hidden Markov Processes
Generate Details

This app uses a hidden Markov Processes each for forming vowels and constants in a theoretical oral cavity - ie tongue, lips, palette. The algorithim starts with a random formant and performs a few gradual deformations to fill out syllables. A syllable can have 3 to 5 formants, then another syllable is started with some other random formant. Navigate to the Details page for more information.

This application was originally a lame attempt to create ethnic sounding DnD character names....
