Especially, the intelligibility has reached an adequate level for most applications, especially for communication impaired people. The intelligibility of synthetic speech may also be increased considerably with visual information. The objective of this work is to map the current situation of speech synthesis technology. Speech synthesis may be categorized as restricted (messaging) and unrestricted (text-to-speech) synthesis. The first one is suitable for announcing and information systems while the latter is needed for example in applications for the visually impaired. The text-to-speech procedure consists of two main phases, usually called high- and low-level synthesis. In high-level synthesis the
