This paper is devoted to the text normalization module in our text-to-speech synthesis system. We focused on conversion numerals written as figures into a readable full-length form. The numerals conversion is a significant issue in inflectional language as Czech, Russian or Slovak because morphological and semantic information is necessary to make the conversion unambiguous. In the paper three part-of-speech tagging methods are compared. Furthermore, a method reducing the tagset to increase the numerals conversion accuracy is presented in the paper.
