This paper reports the progress of the French text-to-speech system being developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories as part of a larger project for multilingual text-to-speech systems, including lan- guages such as Spanish, Italian, German, Rus- sian, and Chinese. These systems, based on di- phone and triphone concatenation, follow the gen- eral framework of the Bell Laboratories English TTS system [?], [?]. This paper provides a de- scription of the approach, the current status of the French text-to-speech project, and some problems particular to French.
