Cross-Lingual Voice Conversion (2007)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Cross-lingual voice conversion refers to the automatic transformation of a source speakerâ€™s voice to a target speakerâ€™s voice in a language that the target speaker can not speak. It involves a set of statistical analysis, pattern recognition, machine learning, and signal processing techniques. This study focuses on the problems related to cross-lingual voice conversion by discussing open research questions, presenting new methods, and performing comparisons with the state-of-the-art techniques. In the training stage, a Phonetic Hidden Markov Model based automatic segmentation and alignment method is developed for cross-lingual applications which support textindependent and text-dependent modes. Vocal tract transformation function is estimated using weighted speech frame mapping in more detail. Adjusting the weights, similarity to target ... toggle 2 keywordsvoice conversion – cross lingual
