Text to Speech Conversion of Mathematical Equations in Latex

Authors(3) :-S. Ganesh Swaminathan, H. Suganya, P. Kalaivani

Speech synthesis has been a very significant milestone in the history of computing. Converting normal text in any natural language to speech can be done by text to speech synthesizer available off the shelf. However converting special forms of text like those used for typesetting or publishing becomes a real challenge. When this text comprises of mathematical equations the challenge becomes more so. This research work focuses on conversion of mathematical equations expressed in LaTeX format to equivalent speech form using a normal text to speech synthesizer in English.
