This paper describes about the work done in building a prototype text to speech system for Sanskrit. A basic prototype text-tospeech is built using a simplified Sanskrit phone set, and employing a unit selection technique, where prerecorded sub-word units are concatenated to synthesize a sentence. We also discuss the issues involved in building a full-fledged text-to-speech for Sanskrit.
