Evaluation of speech synthesis traditionally considers intelligibility and naturalness. More recently, expressivity has become an issue with the increasing demand for expressive voices. Due to the multitude of aspects involved, there is no agreed standard for evaluation of speech synthesis systems. Since 2005, the Blizzard Challenge is an annual joint event for comparing speech synthesis technologies with a common database.
